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
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.
