Evaluating combat in ornithischian dinosaursAuthor:FarkeAbstract:Ornithischia, a diverse clade of herbivorous dinosaurs, has numerous members with structures hypothesized to function in combat. These include the horned ceratopsids, dome-headed pachycephalosaurs, spike-thumbed iguanodonts, tail-clubbed ankylosaurs and spiked stegosaurs, among others. Show More Summary
Hopefully, most of you will already be aware that Tsintaosaurus has a new, far more dignified look, with its unfortunate unicorn horn replaced by a far more elegant affair reminiscent of other lambeosaurine hadrosaurs. This is thanks to Albert Prieto-Márquez and Jonathan Wagner, in a paper published in PLOS ONE (so it's free, free, free! To view). Show More Summary

There’s a new dinosaur in southern Utah — a relative of the triceratops called nasutoceratops (“big-nose horned-face”) and noted for its large nose and big horns. The dinosaur got the name “nasutoceratops” after describing itself to a sketch artist … Continue reading ?
"Nasutoceratops translates as 'big-nose horned face." Scientists don't know why this Triceratops relative had such a large nose. Take a gander at what they think it looked like.
A remarkable new species of horned dinosaur has been unearthed in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, southern Utah. The huge plant-eater inhabited Laramidia, a landmass formed when a shallow sea flooded the central region of North America, isolating western and eastern portions for millions of years during the Late Cretaceous Period.
