2 new ceratopsians found, one of which is weirder than Einiosaurus

 

 Some new ceratopsians have been found in utah. Big deal you may say. But they seam to have lived on a long island (see picture) which no longer exists. It was called laramidia which was separated from the rest of the USA by a wide, shallow sea. They were called Utahceratops (6metres) and smaller Kosmoceratops (4.5 metres) , the later being the weird one. Unlike triceratops, its horns seem to be mostly used for display. Many ceratopsians have been found on the ex-island. It is strange that so many dinosaurs could live in the same palce. One theory is that they had  slower metabolisms so they did not need as much food or space.
