Judiceratops

Judiceratops (Greek for "Judith River horned face"); pronounced JOO-dee-SEH-rah-tops lived in Woodlands of North America in Late Cretaceous (80-75 million years ago). It ate plants and had large frill with triangular serrations. <p class="MsoNormal" style="background-position:initialinitial;background-repeat:initialinitial;">  <p class="MsoNormal" style="background-position:initialinitial;background-repeat:initialinitial;">Even paleontologists have a hard time keeping up with the profusion of ceratopsians (horned, frilled dinosaurs) that have been announced over the past few years. The latest of the batch, as of May 2013, is Judiceratops, named after the Judith River Formation in Montana where its "type fossil" was discovered. Judiceratops' claim to fame is that it's the earliest "chasmosaurine" dinosaur yet identified, ancestral to the better-known Chasmosaurus that lived a few million years later—a kinship you can instantly detect in these two dinosaurs' distinctively ornamented frills. <p class="MsoNormal">
