New Horned Dinosaur discovered

First the planet Kepler 22b is discovered, and now a new dinosaur Spinops sternbergorum (pictured right) was found in Alberta, Canada. Some basic info about it:

“The Spinops was a smaller cousin to the Triceratops and lived 76 million years ago.
It was a plant-eater with a distinctive horn projecting from the top of its nose and a bony neck frill with two spikes protruding backwards and two hooks curving forwards.”

Pretty interesting, and who knows maybe there will be a Papo toy in a few years. I wonder how many other finds have been ignored as “rubbish” and are just waiting to be revisited?
