Scientists have named a new species of horned dinosaur (ceratopsian) from Alberta, Canada. Xenoceratops foremostensis (Zee-NO-Sare-ah-tops) was identified from fossils originally collected in 1958. Approximately 20 feet long and weighing more than 2 tons, the newly identified plant-eating dinosaur represents the oldest known large-bodied horned dinosaur from Canada. Research describing the new species is published in the October 2012 issue of the Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences.

Whenever I'm eating something in a park and they all surround me, that's what I think of.

It's hard not to notice the barely contained malevolent insanity lurking behind their eyes once you see it for the first time.

I keep my dad's birds on their toes by threatening them with a chicken drumstick whenever I go there."Mmmm, tasty birdie"

I love the new dino find...talk about your ten year old dreams coming true. From the age of 8-12, my goal in life was to be a paleontologist
