"Paleontologists from the University of Calgary have discovered a massive, 70 million-year-old skull of a horned dinosaur: a pachyrhinosaur, to be exact. It is described as a 'rare find': the last discovery of this type in the same region dates back to more than 50 years ago when only a partial skull was collected.

Found in the Alberta Badlands in Canada, its two meter long head had large bony bumps, short curved horns and a large frill at its neck. In her statement, researcher Darla Zelenitsky said, "the skull of this animal has an enormous bony structure over the snout that would have made for a very strange looking individual.
