Let's have, before we dismiss for the day, a look at what a frill might look at with some color on it finally! All of the above Styracosaurs were devoid of color, but, for most animal behaviorists, almost any surface like the frill of a ceratopsian dinosaur would be a billboard for sex and intimidation. What would a drab brown or green frill be in either role as an intimidating weapon to frighten off predators or rivals or as a fashion statement to attract mates without a splash of color like the frill below? I will leave you to ponder that question!
