Sinoceratops is a ceratopsian from China, Asia. It measures 20 feet long and weighs 6 tons. It has a small horn which was used for defense. This genus of Ceratopsian used said horn for defense. It was present on Isla Nublar during the eruption of Mt. Sibo. One particular individual inevitably saved Owen twice by accidentally jostling him awake and fighting off a Carnotaurus. Identifiable by its chipped horn, it is captured by Mills' men. Set free by Maisie, it escaped onto the mainland with others of it's kind.
Sinoceratops could return in Jurassic World 3.

This Interesting looking Creature has strong teeth to help her chew tough plants. Her skull has massive flattened projections called bosses One large boss looms over her nose and a smaller one over her eyes this is as it is very social and likes live in large herds. these animals were Recreated by InGen on Isla Nublar for Masrani Corporation's Jurassic World, Sinoceratops originated in China during the Late Cretaceous period. they lived with other herbivorous members of the park in the Gyrosphere Valley, the Gallimimus Valley And Triceratops territory before the park was abandoned in 2015.
Herbivore File: Chinese Rhino of Nublar
Name: Sinoceratops masranio Nublarensis
Location And Era: Xingezhuang Formation Mid-Late Cretaceous period
top speed: can gallop up 25 mph
Lifespan: 40-50 years
Status: critically endangered
Vocalization: deep bellows, grunts, snorts and rumbles, the young's calls are higher in pitch, consisting of squeals, bleats and squeaks, producing a shrill cry when scared. Sinoceratops have very large nasal cavities, which act as resonating chambers and enables them to emit a range of very loud low frequency wails reminiscent of a diesel freight train siren. These sounds can be distinguished by other members of the same species as either mating calls, general communication or distress calls.
Diet: herbivore; Very flexible omnivores, will eat a wide range of flora including grass, cycads, palms, ferns, fruits and flowers. Their sharp beaks are very powerful, allowing them to crack open coconuts, melons and even occasionally grass.Turns out this asset are not so fussy about what they eat, and just like wild boar, some meat from time to time. Nutritionists have also pointed out that it is to supplement their diet with extra calcium and protein for growth, especially in the strength of bones. Ever since this revelation, the young Gallimimus had then been moved to the "gentle giants petting zoo", where they learn to get used to to humans and "large" dinosaurs more effectively. some herbivores (like cows, goats, and deer) sometimes have a small bit of meat to supplement protein to their 90% plant diet and it's something that was suspected very heavily with ceratopsians.
Range: formerly Isla Nublar now the mainland
Habitat: Large open areas with an excess of grass, ferns and flowering plants. Individuals will occasionally wander into forested areas to scavenge for fruits littered on the forest floor. Sinoceratops also like to travel to beaches and riverbanks. They are populations in the dense and treacherous jungle.
DNA interpolation: (91%) pure Sinoceratops DNA, (9%) African reed frog DNA
Predators: Carnotaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex, Baryonyx, packs of raptors, and Allosaurus
Additional Info: InGen used to place their juvenile Gallimimus with the Sinoceratops untill they were sub-adults so they were used living with larger animals before being moved to the wide open spaces of the Gyrosphere Valley and the Gallimimus Valley. Everything went well for roughly two months until suddenly the keepers noticed one of the Gallimimus hatchlings had disappeared. At first, it was thought that a native bird of prey was the culprit, but then the other three that disappeared after this too. It was only after two weeks that during a clean-up, one of the caretakers finally found the culprits: the Sinoceratops themselves. Though a large heavy set animal it’s still a fast animal.
Like a Triceratops, Sinoceratops' eyesight is very poor, and the animal relies on its heightened sense of smell to detect food and danger. They are more rare in the grasslands than Triceratops, but are abundant in the Northern jungles and wetlands Compared to most ceratopsians who have nasal horns, Sinoceratops instead has a large bony growth on it's snout known as a boss, which could be used a battering ram when fighting predators or rivals. Their head frills are not as big as those of Triceratops, but are quite unique for sporting small, curved and forward pointing horns. Small to large sized carnivores are common threats to both young and adult Sinoceratops, but smaller predators are primarily of little concern to the well armed adults.
Males battling for dominance over their herds and mating rights are less likely to engage in physical contact than Triceratops, at certain times of the year male Sinoceratops frills become brighter Often the males with the flashiest frills and most impressive head ornamentation earn themselves the largest harems of females. Eggs are laid in loose forest, in bowls dug by the back feet of the adults. Often several females use the same nest, depositing many eggs in a single bowl. The adults provide vegetation to help the eggs incubate, and they remain on constant guard, often forming a ring around the nesting area to prevent predator access. The hatchlings are fed on regurgitated plant matter by the adults, growing quickly so they are able to travel with the herd without fear of being trampled by the adults. From then on they remain hidden at the center of the herd with the adults on the outside, well protected from carnivores.
They feed on low plants of several kinds and lives in small herds; males usually live in leave the herd and spend there days alone or in same sex groups. This might be due to the females being intolerant of them when they have young. Sinoceratops herds often go through the same routes once and again, creating natural roads by trampling the vegetation. The same can be said about Triceratops.
Sinoceratops share many characteristic with hippos and elephants example these assets Must be watched at all times in the Gyrosphere Valley, despite being domesticated, some indidvuals have been known to lash out at both keepers and other large dinosaurs during certain times of year, it’s unclear as to why, though some suggest it to be Musth (which is a heightened aggression sometimes seen in modern elephants) this type of increased aggression is mostly not seen in are assets Even though are herbivores still fight for dominance and mates but no other herbivores on the island show this much aggression. Masrani And ingen Board members had to find a Solution some members of the board suggested to sell or euthanized but Simon masrani Denied it. it was finally decided they would get their own enclosure but since after the events of Jurassic world it was abandoned. The board members were also going to take blood samples to decode the reason for this aggression.
Despite these lash outs these are quite nice and mothers will take in orphan calves even different species on isla nublar there are sights of Sinoceratops taking in an Allosaurus Cubs that were orphaned They are very social and live in large herds. They are very curious as they have heightened senses of smell due to their large noses which can lead them close to unsuspecting humans. It can even smell a person from miles away, especially if they wear too much cologne or perfume or even when they carry vegetation for them to feed: one Sinoceratops wouldn't stop licking the hands of the feeder after she was given a cabbage to feed, like being a cow. The best way a person can do is to be calm and remain still if one Sinoceratops comes close to smell or lick him or her and leave when done. Like hippos Sinoceratops do well in captivity.
Like other ceratopsians, Sinoceratops are fond of mud baths that protect it from parasites and excesive heat. If there isn´t mud available, they bath with dust. They often spend hours in some shadowed place, resting and digesting their last meal. They also spend large amounts of time in water to cool them off.
In the wild Sinoceratops can catch bumble foot Description: Inflammation of a dinosaur's foot caused when a cut or abrasion becomes infected, and then heals over. The resulting swollen abscess is very painful and reduces the animal's overall range of movement, and the odor that emanates from the swelling is also said to attract carnivores looking for an easy meal. This inflammation is more common in herbivore species such as Sinoceratops and Pachycephalosaurus.
They will charge at a speed of 60kmp/h at their target and hit it hard with their horns. They eat the shrubs and low growing ferns. Unlike all other ceratopsians cloned at the park they have holes in their frills. They have been seen traveling with other ceratopsian species. They have fierce rivalries with Tyrannosaurus with their main threat being Baryonyx, which often live in the swamps that Sinoceratops call home. They like living in river deltas and swampy areas but will travel with the protection of other ceratopsians on the plains. One incident involving a male ramming over a safari car killing everyone inside has been recorded. Along with that, a worker barely escaped a charge. He said it is one of the scariest things ever to be on the receiving end of those horns.
Prevention and Treatment: Like modern elephants, herbivores like Triceratops and Brachiosaurus keep their hygiene at a high level with constant baths. Having access to a large, clean water source is a good preventative measure, as it enables the animals to clean any wounds on their feet as they wash themselves. But aside from that, all we know is that after the "Indominus incident" they have lived in the wild for over three years and now are at the mercy of the imminent eruption of Mount Sibo and if the DPG can't do anything, this species is at risk of becoming extinct...
The 2018 Mount Sibo extinction event: An InGen animal's recorder, Is sad to announce that the Isla Nublar population has been wiped out by Mount Sibo. But there have been rumors that five or even six individuals were saved. And recently, there's been reports of strange "rhino-like beasts" roaming the Californian wilderness.
