A new horned dinosaur species was unearthed in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. The dinosaur lived around 77 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous period. The finding was recently published in the peer-reviewed journal, PLOS One. Eric Lund, lead author, said the dinosaur has some unique characteristics not seen in other horned species. In fact, the dinosaur’s name, Machairoceratops cronusi, is in reference to what many find to be its most distinguishing feature- bent ‘sword-like’ spikes.
