A newly described horned dinosaur that lived in New Mexico 82 million years ago is one of the earliest known ceratopsid species , a group known as horned or frilled dinosaurs . Researchers reported their find in a publication in the journal PalZ (Paläontologische Zeitschrift). Spencer Lucas and Asher Lichtig of the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science in Albuquerque were also part of the research team. "There has been a striking increase in our knowledge of ceratopsid diversity during the past two decades," says Dodson, who specializes in the study of horned dinosaurs .

SALT LAKE CITY - A Mexican paleontologist was cleaning up after lunch with a group of schoolchildren she'd been teaching to dig for bones in northeastern Mexico when she found the dinosaur bone.

Dinosaurs roamed New Mexico during the Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic eras, leaving behind a fossil record that tells the story of more than 500 million years. Although there were many dinosaurs that once roamed the state, several stand out as exceptional specimens. A great place to learn more about dinosaurs in New Mexico is at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. Although it was first discovered in Alberta, Canada, the discoveries made in New Mexico in 1995 helped scientists identify two additional species of this unusual dinosaur .

A new species of dinosaur has been discovered in New Mexico . Sebastian Dalman, 44, a paleontologist at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, uncovered the bones of the extinct animal while re-examining fossilized fragments already in the museum's collection. "I put them all together, and based on what we now have, I identified it as a new genus and a new species ," Dalman told the Albuquerque Journal.

"in 2021" that this is a new species of dinosaur, emphasized the INAH.

"We know they had ears capable of receiving low frequency sounds, so it had to be peaceful but communicative dinosaurs" , also advance the Institute. Paleontologists also think they "emit strong sounds to scare the carnivores or for reproduction purposes" , and feel that "the ridges were in color" .
