The spiky headgear of Styracosaurus may have proclaimed, “Back off, T. rex!” or “Hey, aren't I irresistible?” according to paleontologists still debating the spines' function. The drawing of this Cretaceous herbivore is one of the many stylish dinosaur images you'll find at Dino Directory, a quick-reference site from the Natural History Museum in London. Dig through more than 100 listings alphabetically or by geological period, body shape, or geographical distribution. Like a baseball card, the entry for each dinosaur genus presents just the vital facts, such as size, diet, and range, along with pictures from the museum's huge gallery. Ninety additional accounts are evolving.
