Sinoceratops, whose name means 'horned face from China', was a very large ceratopsian dinosaur. The dinosaur used to live in what is now China during the Upper Cretaceous. Sinoceratops is an ancestor of Styracosaurus and Centrosaurus. The head of a full-grown Sinoceratops was probably about 1.8 metres (5.9 ft) long.
