Nice job, though I would've made the tail longer.

Yeah, guess I was wrong. I thought it would be Tyrannosaurus, but guess that was #99!

So even after getting the horns the Certopsians kept the quills on their rear-ends?

possibly, it's not known for sure, but it's a distinct possibility--an undescribed specimen of triceratops with skin impressions suggests that they did, though what the quills would have been for is anyone's guess.

Maybe they would be used for display, or if they were sharp, to provide some protection for the animal's tail-end?
