New Dinosaur Discovered, Nicknamed Hellboy After Comic


So a new dinosaur has been discovered, and has been given a rather colorful nickname due to its horn placement:

The newly identified Regaliceratops peterhewsi has been informally named after Mike Mignola’s perpetually grumpy paranormal investigator (Hellboy,) owing to the presence of a pair of prominent horns just above its eyes.

All I am saying here is they better not get rid of this nickname at some point and give it some lame name that nixes the Hellboy connection. Heck, I say name it Hellboysasaurus, but I might be alone in that.
