A horned dinosaur with 15 horns

Kosmoceratops richardsoni

Two new horned dinosaurs were described in a new research article published today: Kosmoceratops richardsoni and Utahceratops gettyi. The article discusses them in the context of the dinosaur provincialism hypothesis — were dinosaurs in Cretaceous western North America part of a single biome, or were they fragmented into distinct habitats? — but never mind that shit: look at all the bloody horns on that Kosmoceratops! Ten on the frill and five on the face — and I bet you thought Styracosaurus was something. Via io9.
