December 09, 2015
The Ceratopsia family is growing again. A team of researchers led by, James Clark, Ronald Weintraub Associate Professor of Biology at the George Washington University and Xu Xing, professor at the Chinese Academy of Sciences have described a new species of plant-eating dinosaur, Hualianceratops wucaiwanensis, that stood on its hind feet and was about the size of a spaniel. It is similar in age to the oldest-known member of the “horned dinosaurs,” Yinlong downsi, although both are hornless.
