New Dinosaur Discovered.

NOT a photograph:  Artist Rendering.
Recently Japan and the US announced the discovery of a completely new dinosaur, the Koreaceratops. Try to guess where they found it, if you answered Fresno you are an idiot.
Turns out the scientists discovered this extinct horned creature in... KOREA... South Korea to be exact.
Pretty fitting name huh? ...those crazy scientists have some creative naming skills to come up with something so original.
At approximately 5 to 6 feet long and weighing between 60 and 100 pounds, the animal was relatively small compared to its geologically younger, giant relatives like North America's Triceratops. Koreaceratops had a parrot-like face with a beak at the front of its jaws, indicating it was an herbivore. The claws on its hind feet suggest that it was bipedal and moved at a fairly rapid speed. Koreaceratops had a unique fan-shaped tail formed by long neural spines, which suggests it may have been a good swimmer, and spent part of its time hunting for aquatic food.
