Mini triceratops-like dinosaur could be new species

New triceratops speciessA team of Colorado researchers say there's nothing else like the dinosaur specimen they unearthed. Though it's yet to be given a scientific name, scientists dubbed the dino "Ava," due to its resemblance of triceratops relative Avaceratops.

The dinosaur's fossils were discovered at the Judith River Formation in Montana. They're dated at 75 million years old, placing the dino's heyday within the Campanian stage of the Late Cretaceous.

"This is really a cute dinosaur, if dinosaurs can be cute," Michael Triebold, president of Triebold Paleontology, Inc. and founder of the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center, told CBS News. "It looks like a mini triceratops at a glance, but no nose horn."

On top of the missing nose horn and miniature size, the specimen features unusual proportions, leading researchers to believe the fossils are evidence of a new species.
