The tiny, intact skeleton of a baby rhinoceroslike dinosaur has been unearthed in Canada.
The toddler was just 3 years old and 5 feet (1.5 meters) long when it wandered into a river near Alberta, Canada, and drowned about 70 million years ago. The beast was so well-preserved that some of its skin left impressions in the nearby rock.
The fossil is the smallest intact skeleton ever found from a group of horned, plant-eating dinosaurs known as ceratopsids, a group that includes the iconic Triceratops.
Finding intact baby dinosaurs is incredibly rare.
"The big ones just preserve better: They don’t get eaten, they don’t get destroyed by animals," said study co-author Philip Currie, a paleobiologist at the University of Alberta. “You always hope you’re going to find something small and that it will turn out to be a dinosaur.”
Paleontologists had unearthed a few individual bones from smaller ceratopsids in the past. But without intact juvenile skeletons, such bones aren’t very useful, as scientists don’t really know how each bone changes during each stage of the animals’ lives, Currie said.
The team was bone-hunting in Dinosaur Provincial Park in Alberta when Currie came upon what looked like a turtle shell sticking out from a hillside. Upon closer inspection, the fossil turned out to be a frill, the bony decorative headgear that surrounds the back of the head in ceratopsids.
When the team excavated, they found the fossilized skeleton of a tiny dinosaur they identified as a Chasmosaurus belli, a species commonly found in the area.
so fucking cool
This is the most acurate tho

I want you to meet Dennis. He’s a huge lover of comics, (as you can tell from his awesome PJs!) And I recently found his story through Facebook.
He’s a 55 year old man, and he has a mental and physical disability, with terminal cancer. The doctors say he has about 6 months to live, so his close friends really want to make Christmas special for him this year, and the idea is to send him a Christmas card, with a picture of a superhero character that you cosplay, signed as that character.
If you want to contribute to this, or ask any questions related to this, then you can contact James Fipps on Facebook.
Now I don’t know these people, but I really wish I did. They seem to be wonderful people, and Dennis is such a strong person, I hope he has the best Christmas of his life this year!
Thank you for reading this, please do try and share this with all the Marvel & DC friends you have. Have a Super Christmas guys!

That is amazing. I’m no cosplayer, but I know a bunch of you are! Dress up in your best for an awesome cause. *_*
I don’t have any comic-related cosplays at the mo, but I want to signal boost the frick frack out of this
If you cosplay a super hero you might want to contribute to this!

One of my classmates made me this little diva cup storage container that looks like a reproductive system. Needless to say, I’m in love with it.
THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PHOTOSET IN THE WORLD
