Sinoceratops is a ceratopsia 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 later seen swimming away during the eruption and captured by Mills' men. Set free by Maisie, it escaped onto the mainland with others of it's kind.
Herbivore Profile- Chinese Rhino of Nublar

lifespan: 51 years
exhibit: triceratops territory, Gyrosphere valley And Gallimimus vallley
Height: 10ft Edit
Length: 20ft Edit
Weight: 6 tons Edit
status: critically endangered
Main diet: their low to the grow browsers, but will also use their heads to knock down trees and feast what’s on top so their mainly Herbivores but juveniles will add meat and bones to their diet to help fuel fast-growing skeletons but will mainly eat fruit, seeds, cycads and marsh plants

top speed: can gallop up 25 mph
DNA interpolation: (91%) pure sinoceratops dna , (9%) African reed frog
predators: Carnotaurus, tyrannosaurus rex, baryonyx And allosaurus
Aggression Rating: medium Edit
Illnesses: Common Cold Virus, bumblefoot and Bracken fern poisoning, Tuberculosis, hookworm, Ammonia poisoning, Mycotoxins and algae poisoning
addtionally info: 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). the other reason comes with an odd story, Ingen used to place their juvenile Gallimimus and lesothosaurus 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. 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.
I particularly love this reason as it seems to be a nice reference to how in the real world, 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, so a nice paleontology reference.
