A new species of dinosaur has been uncovered in Utah. It was named Nasutoceratops titusi, which means means "big-nosed horned face." An apt name.
A University of Utah grad student discovered the first specimen in 2006 in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in the high desert of southern Utah. At 15 feet long and 2.5 tons, the quadrupedal herbivore belonged to a family called ceratopsids, a group of dinos from the Late Cretaceous period that had beaks, horns and frills, like the Triceratops.
Nasutoceratops' unusually elongated, forward-facing horns likely served as a sign of dominance and, if necessary, weapons in the competition for mates.
