A museum in Mexico has revealed the remains of a new species of dinosaur that is native to the country's northern desert region.
The newest dinosaur species is of the genus of the horned ‘Ceratopsidae.’ The acclaimed Desert Museum says work is still ongoing on the remains of the dinosaur but the intact remains of the animal's cranium are a world first.
It is a relatively small dinosaur at only 3 meters in length. Experts say the dinosaur roamed the now desert areas some 70 million years ago when the region was a coastal marsh and floodplain.
Because of its diverse climatic factors, Mexico's northern desert is a prime stamping ground for paleontologists in search of dinosaurs.
