Dinosaurs With 15 Horns, 7-Foot Heads Are Discovered in Utah


www.businessweek.com

Two new species of horned dinosaurs were discovered to have lived in Utah 76 million years ago when the U.S. state was part of an island continent.

One of the giant reptiles, dubbed the Utahceratops gettyi, had a 7-foot-long head. The other, called Kosmoceratops richardsoni, the most-ornate dinosaur ever unearthed, had 15 horns: 1 over the nose, 1 over each eye and at the tip of each cheekbone, and 10 across the back of its bony frill.

Skulls of the dinosaurs will be on display at the Ut

That's a pretty crazy looking animal there, it's almost as if the horns are used like women wear pearl necklaces.

And apparently that's exactly what it was used for.



Dr Scott Sampson, from the Utah Museum of Natural History in the US, said: ''Kosmoceratops is one of the most amazing animals known, with a huge skull decorated with an assortment of bony bells and whistles.''

He thought it likely that horned dinosaurs such as Kosmoceratops used their impressive armaments to find mates rather than take on predators such as Tyrannosaurus rex.

I don't know I found this to be quite interesting for some reason, seems like the dinosaur environment is nothing like what we thought it was.

Maybe instead of being complete chaos it was more like The Love Boat.

There's so much more about our own planet that we don't know about yet.

Good find, I wouldn't want to run into something like that one night, or day for that matter. This is archealogy at its best, you are right who knows what is out there, my pearls don't look anything like that.


It seems this is a first, I haven't come across anything like this.

That's alright, there are also lizards in Michigan but they don't look so scary, have not come across horned lizard's. I used to see them all the time where I was raised but they don't seem to like the suburbs where I'm at now.

The island continent part is interesting. All the skeptics who think there aren't cycles and only conitnental drift is real,that argue that the world has only changed a bit in all this time. I wonder what major changes have occurred in the past 76 million years?

If this dino live today and breed as livestock, would you eat it ?

Special menu today: 15horns kebabs! (The horns might get into some chinese medicine shop)

In some foods gelatin is made out of horns and hooves, in other foods gelatin is made from the collagen inside animals.

At the end of the day what difference does it make, eating meat is nasty period whether it's this bodypart or that bodypart... point is... it's a bodypart!!!

Hi,

Many thanks for the post and link - seems Utah, Arizona and SE Colorado are real hotspots for this sort of discovery recently. Always find it amazing what diversity there was (and is).

(Mind you the link photo looked much like my ex after she had applied makeup).

Peace!
