Achelousaurus, Achelosaurus
An “Achelous lizard” from Late Cretaceous North America (Montana). It was named after the Greek, Akheloos, a mythical river god who could change shape at will. He transformed himself into a bull to fight Hercules, who defeated Achelous by tearing off one of his horns. The name alludes to the way a large hornless dinosaur apparently evolved from earlier horned ancestors. Named by Scott Matthew Sampson in 1995.
