They are calling it "Baby", which according to scientist Clive Coy, University of Alberta is unimaginative, but affectionate.
It appears that the 3-year-old chasmosaurus belli was with his herd of relatives, but had fallen into a river, drowned and sunk into the sediment.
The chasmosaurus hailed from a group of horned plant-eating dinosaurs called ceratopsids, who would usually cross rivers in herds but the old, sick and young were sometimes left behind, the New York Daily News reported.
Dr. Philip Currie, director of paleobiology at the University of Alberta, came across the baby dinosaur while he was hunting for dino bones in May 2010.
Although its forelimbs had fallen into a sinkhole, the 5-foot-long dinosaur was remarkably intact, even after 74 million years.
Coy said that there was no previous evidence of what these animals were like when they were young or how they developed, this being first one ever found.
The scientists had waited for more than two years, before telling the public about their special find.
