'Longhorn' Dinosaur Fossil Discovered in Utah

illustration of nasutoceratops Horned mega-herbivores such as Nasutoceratops (pictured here) and the iconic Triceratops thrived during the late Cretaceous Period. 
 
The fossilized remains of a newly identified dinosaur with horns so long they would put Triceratops to shame has been discovered in the Utah desert.  

The new species, described today in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, was dubbed Nasutoceratops, which translates to "big-nosed horned face." The giant beast lived roughly 76 million years ago and was part of the ceratopsid group, which consists of plant-eating, rhinoceros-like dinos, including Triceratops.
