Alaska’s Very Own Horned Dinosaur, Pachyrhinosaurus perotorum: A new species of Ceratopsian (Horned dinosaur) Pachyrhinosaurus perotorum, has been discovered from the Prince Creek formation of the North Slope in the northernmost region of Alaska. The species is based on two fragments of the bones that formed the frill as well as a partial skull. To date the specie is unique and and found only in Alaska. The dinosaur lived about 70 million years ago and was a herbivore. The skull they found was about three meters tall is now on permanent display at the Perot Museum of Science and Nature, Dallas, Texas. Perotorum is the third named species of the genus Pachyrhinosaurus which contains Ceratopsians with massive flattened bosses in place of the usual horns on the nose and above the eyes. It is characterized by the unique pair of horns just at the top edge of the parietal cavities (the large holes in the frill), and a narrow dome in a back portion of the nasal boss. Also Included in the piece is the recently discovered new specie of bird "Gruipeda vegrandiunis," roughly translating to "tiny one," for a bird that left small tracks in what is now Denali Park, Alaska. Dr Anthony Fiorillo of the Perot Museum of Science & Nature advised for the project to ensure the accuracy of this piece.
