Ponca City, We love you writes “The Guardian reports that paleontologists have uncovered the remains of an ancient beast called Kosmoceratops richardsoni that stood 16 feet tall with a 6-foot skull equipped with 15 horns and lived 76 million years ago in the warm, wet swamps of what is now southern Utah. “These animals are basically over-sized rhinos with a whole lot more horns on their heads. They had huge heads relative to their body size,” says Scott Sampson, a researcher at the Utah Museum of Natural History.”
