Completing the Styracosaurus[]

In City Folk[]

After donating all of the pieces of the Styracosaurus to the museum in City Folk, Blathers will give the player information on the creature with the following dialogue:

"...What, hoo?! It seems the styracosaurus is complete! Wondrous! Just wondrous! The styracosaurus appeared in the late days of the dinosaurs. Its characteristic horns and collar looked like frills--very dino-fashionable, wot wot! And actually, they had to be, because the rear frill was used by males to attract females. I guess male-female relations haven't changed much in all these years, eh wot? HOO! I...beg your pardon! I was so enthralled, I... I spouted hot air like a boiling teapot, eh wot?"

In New Leaf[]

In New Leaf, a plaque by the display offers information about the fossil instead of Blathers.

"Styracosaurus literally means "spiked lizard." It looked roughly like a more intense triceratops. In addition to the spike on its nose, it had three sets of horns extending from its gaudy neck frill. Fossils have generally been found in groups, so the belief is that it was a herd animal."
