Scientists who have been studying the fossil of a previously unknown species of horned dinosaur in northwest New Mexico have discovered a new species that they believe is a primitive ancestor of the Triceratops and its kin. The scientists believe the fossils are from the late Cretaceous period, about 66 million years ago, and that the new species has 3 large spikes on its head and a bony frill that protected its neck. The discovery of the new species has been published in the journal Nature. The new species is called Triceratops horridus, and it was discovered by a team of paleontologists.
