Bones found 10 years ago along the Oldman River in Alberta belonged to a new species of horned dinosaur. This is the first time an horned dinosaurs species has been discovered in Alberta.
According to a new study, this dinosaur is similar in many respects to Triceratops, except that its nose horn is taller and the two horns over its eye are smaller. Researchers named the dinosaur Regaliceratops peterhewsi in honour of its distinctive frill and of the discoverer of the fossil, Peter Hews.
Lead author Caleb Brown also proposed to his girlfriend in the acknowledgement section of the paper, and she did say yes.
