Oldest Horned Dinosaur in North American Discovered

Big things sometimes come in small packages, and that was certainly the case for a recent fossil finding in the United States.

Paleontologists working in southern Montana unearthed a 3-inch beaked skull with pointed cheeks, which they believe is the oldest definitive evidence of a horned dinosaur in North America. Though small, the skull helps fill gaps in the evolutionary history of horned creatures on this continent.
