Interesting read, but I would hope that they actually discover new remains to back up this reworking of an old find..


ecnmag.com

Triceratops and Torosaurus have long been considered the kings of the horned dinosaurs. But a new discovery traces the giants' family tree further back in time, when a newly discovered species appears to have reigned long before its more well-known descendants, making it the earliest known member of its family.

The new species, called Titanoceratops after the Greek myth of the Titans, rivaled Triceratops in size, with an estimated weight of nearly 15,000 pounds and a massive eight-foot-long skull.

Interesting read ty for posting
but maybe this needs to be moved to a more appropriate place as its hardly a cryptid or a mythological beast and might get more interest elsewhere?

isn't that thread about the probability that Triceratops was actually a juvenile Torosaurus as opposed to this thread which is about a newly discovered ancestor of Torosaurus & Triceratops?
