Andy Farke has made even more notes publicly available! Here’s his post to the Dinosaur Mailing List:

Following my post on Friday, I have uploaded original museum notes for
additional specimens of horned dinosaurs at the YPM and USNM. The data
include notes, measurements, descriptions, and more. As mentioned
previously, I hope that the data will be useful to researchers of all
stripes, and that this release will encourage other workers to post
their own datasets.

Taxa covered include: Triceratops spp., Torosaurus utahensis,
Brachyceratops canadensis, Pentaceratops sternbergii, cf. Centrosaurus
sp., and Ceratops montanus, among others. All of the data sets are
accessible from my author page on figshare.com:

So the YPM Torosaurus specimen notes previously published now get company! Awesome!

I wish I had some useful notes to scan and post! Most of my stuff is not written down anywhere in a format that makes posting easy.

And so that this is not another dry text-only post, here’s a photo of the two toy ceratopsians I bought for my kids today, Torosaurus and Triceratops (how fitting for the current con-(cera)topso-versy).
