Laborers breaking ground for the construction of a new fire station and police headquarters in North Denver, Colorado, have encountered a 66 million year old Triceratops skeleton.

During the work, one of the workers thought that the discovery of bones could be a fossilSo they called the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. When Joseph Sertich, the museum's curator, arrived, identified the bones of the Triceratops.

«It's a little Triceratops«, Sertich expressed, being half the size of those that have been unearthed in Montana and North Dakota,«although we really don't know why«He added.

«Although we have hundreds of Triceratops from the American West, we only have three good skulls and this might be one of the best skeletons to tell us why Denver Triceratops are smaller than all of their cousins ​​from anywhere else.«, Sentenced.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more.
