"Although the ornamentation on the frill is pretty spectacular, it probably was not used for defense against predators; rather it was more likely prehistoric "bling" used to attract a mate," said co-author Anthony Russell, Ph.D., professor of biological sciences at the University of Calgary in Alberta.

Medusaceratops?

Are we discovering dinosaurs or Castlevania enemies here?

More like professional paleontology, the journalist is just quoting the professor.

I really doubt that the professor had no other words to describe it than "bling" and that the journalist wasn't just choosing the most unlikely phrase out of an interview that may have lasted for hours.
But now we're just ruining the moment.

Maybe we're reading it wrong!  Look at the double-quotes around "bling" -- maybe each sentence fragment that surrounds it is the actual quote, with "bling" interjected by the reporter as an editorial aside.

Man, the way you guys like to argue over trivial stuff is impressive.

Some scientist said a dinosaur had bling. It made it into a news article. It's funny. :joke:

Seriously? Medusaceratops? And the design is terrible. It's like they just mashed a triceratops and a styracosaurus together and made it look "edgy". Honestly these new designs just have none of the charm of the original 151.

O V E R M O D E R A T I O N

It's a shame they actually don't know what color they were. I think that Purple look is going off the whole blinging thing.
