Ceratopsians were ornithischians, or "bird-hipped" dinosaurs, such as the well known Triceratops. Forms without the enormous horns and frills of Triceratops, in the family Protoceratopsidae, include the Mongolian genus Protoceratops and the unusual bipedal, frill-less dinosaur Psittacosaurus ("parrot-lizard"). This description of their classification, morphology, locomotion, and eating habits also includes active links for further study.
