Protoceratops was a first in many regards.
Protoceratops was for a long time the earliest (or first) member of the ceratopsians that we knew about. The large hornless head was adorned by a parrot like beak and a small neck shield. Like other ceratopsians protoceratops had an array of molars to grind up his food before swallowing it.
The first dinosaur eggs ever found also belonged to protoceratops. In Mongolia a nesting area was unearthed with dozens of protoceratops' nests. If that wasn't enough another remarkable discovery was made near those nests. The first fossilized fight between dinosaurs. The fossil shows a protoceratops fighting a velociraptor.
