Big-nosed, horned-faced dinosaur unearthed in Utah

Paleontologist Alan Titus stands next to a fossil of a "Nasutoceratops titusi" following a news conference at the Natural History Museum of Utah Wednesday, July 17, 2013, in Salt lake City. Researchers in Salt Lake City say fossil-hunters unearthed the bones of a new type of big-nosed, horned-faced dinosaur in southern Utah.  It's part of the same family as the well-known Triceratops. The second part of the name recognizes paleontologist Alan Titus for his years of research work in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument discovery area. (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer)
