Pachyrhinosaurus, meaning "thick-nosed lizard", was a medium sized centrosaurine ceratopsian that lived in the Late Cretaceous Period of North America around 72-70 million years ago. It's most defining feature was its huge, bony mass, or lump, on its face. It was about 20 feet long and about 10 feet tall. It was closely related to Styracosaurus and more distantly related to Triceratops.
According to information from the Dinosaur Protection Group, Pachyrhinosaurus was on InGen's List and was planned to be an attraction for Jurassic Park, with 8% of its genome being completed, but this never came to pass due to InGen's financial troubles. The ceratopsian was eventually recreated by the Masrani Global Corporation for use in Jurassic World.
While no Pachyrhinosaurus appeared in the film, it has been revealed that there were surviving Pachyrhinosaurus populations on Isla Nublar, but as none were seen being taken to Lockwood Manor, it was assumed that the species had fallen back into extinction.
However, its name appears on the Arcadia's mainfest list, implying that at least one Pachyrhinosaurus and possibly others of its kind were captured offscreen, and may have also escaped, or had been sold off.
Pachyrhinosaurus is nr. 103 of the Herbivore Threes that can be created in Jurassic Park III: Park Builder.
Pachyrhinosaurus is one of the available dinosaurs on the IOS application, Jurassic Park: Builder.
Pachyrhinosaurus appears in the game. It is a legendary tournament herbivore. Originally, along with the Kentrosaurus, it was a tournament dinosaur that did not yet have a tournament to fight in and could only only be collected by buying the Earth WWF pack. Now since March 8th, 2018, it could be won in a Pachyrhinosaurus tournament.
A Jurassic Park Pachyrinosaurus toy was going to be released in 2011 but remained prototype. It has since appeared in the Jurassic Park 3D toy line along with Allosaurus.
A figure of Pachyrhinosaurus was originally going to be released for the Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom toyline, as part of the "Roarivores" line. It ended up being re-named named to Sinoceratops and sporting the latter's film coloration.
A pair of Pachyrhinosaurus appear in Jurassic World: The Exhibition. One was a juvenile, and the other was an adult, with the adult probably being the mother of the juvenile.
- The Sinoceratops was originally called Pachyrhinosaurus in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom before being renamed after the first trailer.
