The first appearance of the Tortoceratops. They're purely physical attacking monsters that have high defense and can charge up power for a stronger attack. Sometimes they may drop a strength seed. In the English fan translation for the SNES version, they're known as "Dentasaurus".

You can create a Tortoceratops by breeding any dragon-family monster with an ArmyCrab or a Digster. Its default skills are Berserker, RockThrow, and Kamikaze. Its blurb in the library states that it "Breaks foes as if they were rocks."
