Scientists say they've - rather belatedly - identified a completely new type of large, horned dinosaur after re-examining fossils originally collected in 1958. read more
A new species of horned dinosaur has been officially recognized in Canada, after being misidentified as a similar species for sixty years. Xenoceratops (literally "alien-horned face"), is a distant cousin of the triceratops and lived 80-million years ago. Show More Summary
After being discovered and misidentified back in 1958, the fossil remains of a massive twenty foot long, two-ton horned dinosaur found in Alberta have finally been acknowledged as a new species. Although there's no evidence, scientists...Show More Summary

Remember the Flintstone’s phone? I always wanted one as a kid. And the moment when my mom explained that I would not be able to talk to people through a cow (or in Fred’s case a dinosaur) horn I was crushed!

Just like anything in the world, some dinosaurs were named after the shape of their head or features they may have had, such the number of horns on display. For example, the Ornatotholus was given its name because it had an elaborate-looking dome. In this article, you will encounter some of the dinosaurs that had distinct heads – enough to influence their naming.
From the number of horns on their head to special foot features, many dinosaurs were born with pretty interesting characteristics that have gone into the naming of their species. In this article, you will learn about different dinosaurs whose physical attributes have played a role in what they are called.
This is a diagram illustrating the diversification of duck-billed and horned dinosaurs during the Late Cretaceous as a result of high ocean level and mountain uplift. The geologic time scale is to the left of the diagram, with horizontal green divisions representing the Campanian (lower) and Maastrichtian (upper) time periods. read more
If you cried over the sick Triceratops in Jurassic Park, or just loved this horned dinosaur as a kid, there's one scientific controversy you need to understand right now — it's the one that may wind up demonstrating that Triceratops never existed. Show More Summary
