Scientists have just discovered a new dinosaur in Canada.

They named it Regaliceratops, meaning "royal horned face."

They've also dubbed him "Hellboy" because they say its stubby horns above the eyes resemble a comic-book character of the same name.

It roamed the earth during the Cretaceous period.

His fossilized remains were found along the Oldman River in Alberta with the tip of the snout sticking out of the cliff.



Regaliceratops are similar in size to today's largest rhinos, estimated at 16 feet long, 5 feet tall at the hips and weighing about 1.5 tons.

Nearly the entire skull, but none of the rest of the skeleton, was found.
