ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. Paleontologists with the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science on Thursday unveiled the first baby Pentaceratops skull ever discovered as hundreds of people lined up to get a look.

Scientists had cut open the giant plaster jacket that protected the skull as it was airlifted out of the desert badlands of northwestern New Mexico and trucked to the museum.
