Nasutoceratops: ‘Big-nose, horn-face’ dinosaur described

-

An unusual new species of dinosaur, unearthed from the deserts of Utah, has been described by scientists.

The 5m-long (15ft) beast is a member of the triceratops family, but with a huge nose and exceptionally long horns, palaeontologists say it is unlike anything they have seen before. It has been named accordingly as Nasutoceratops titusi, which means big-nose, horn-face. The research is published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B. Dr Mark Loewen, from the University of Utah and Natural History Museum of Utah, told BBC News: “This dinosaur just completely blew us away. “We would never have predicted it would look like this - it is just so outside of the norm for this group of dinosaurs.” (via BBC News - Nasutoceratops: ‘Big-nose, horn-face’ dinosaur described)
