Daspletosaurus, Canadian Museum of Nature   Daspletosaurus, Canadian Museum of Nature

Daspletosaurus lived around 75 million years ago. At that time Daspletosaurus probably was apex predator, so there were no other predator threatened Daspletosaurus.

Tyrannosaurus appeared about 65 million years ago. Daspletosaurus is approximately 8m (26ft) in length, smaller than Tyrannosaurus, but they are closely related to each other.

Anchiceratops lived during the late cretaceous period ( 73 to 70 million years ago ). The first Anchiceratops was unearthed in Canada. This specimen is very rare because it is composed of almost complete skeletons. Characteristic feature of Anchiceratops is that there is relatively small hole inside of the frill.

Leptoceratops, Canadian Museum of Nature

Leptoceratops lived around 68 to 66 million years ago. They belong to primitive group of ceratopsian dinosaurs, because they do not have broad frill and large horns as their cousins such as Triceratops do. Yet Leptoceratops coexisted with Triceratops same period of time. This is the evidence that successors do not always appeared after predecessors died off.


This is fossilized palm leaf impression. Triceratops was also excavated with this partial leaf in Morgan Creek, Saskatchewan. It is possible that Triceratops may have browsed on palm leaves.
