Fun Fact Friday: 6/12/15–A New Type of Dinosaur Identified

According to History.com, this week was a week of discovery as they identified a new Regaliceratops peterhewsi. It is being said that it lived ~69 million years ago in, what we know as, southern Alberta, Canada. This dinosaur resembles, in size, to today’s rhinoceroses weighing at about 1.5 tons. This dinosaur is believed to have lived 65 million and 100 million years ago. They are calling this dinosaur “Hellboy” as it contains horns on its face.
