Dino Update

Meet Titanoceratops, the Hornier Ancestor of Triceratops | Wired Science | Wired.com: "A newly discovered horned dinosaur called Titanoceratops appears to have reigned long before its more famous descendants, Triceratops and Torosaurus.

The species weighed in at around 6,800 kilograms [15,000 pounds] and an enormous 8-foot skull — rivaling Triceratops for size. It is very similar to Triceratops, but with a thinner frill, longer nose and slightly bigger horns."

I'm not sure I really need to know about any hornier ancestors.
