Protoceratops ("First Horned Face") is a genus of ceratopsian dinosaur. The Protoceratops in Dinotopia are of a species known as Protoceratops multilinguous, which are capable of mimicking a stunning array of sounds, and are thus one of the few dinosaur species capable of not only speaking various saurian languages, but human languages as well. As such, Protoceratops are often employed as ambassadors and translators.[1]
