A newly identified dinosaur with horns so long they would put Triceratops to shame has been discovered in the Utah desert. Nasutoceratops, which translates to big-nosed horned face, sported a wide, flaring snout and absurdly long horns.

In Utah, USA, in 1968, a piece of rock was opened revealing a fossil of a sandaled shoe which seemed to have crushed a trilobite.   Humans are thought to have been on the planet for between 1 and 2 million years, and well shaped footwear only in the last few thousand years. The fossil may be up to 600 million years old. There are those who think the prints may have been made by biped extraterrestrial beings visiting our planet 600 million years ago.

Zarysk: The large number of mammoth bones found at the site raises a lot of questions about their origin. It seems highly unlikely that such a large number of bones was the result of hunting. Given that a large number of bones were burned in the pits (since in the peri-glacial tundra of those times there was little if any wood available) this indicates that the settlement was of a relatively small tribe of several dozen people...

Triceratops is a genus of herbivorous ceratopsid dinosaur that first appeared during the late Maastrichtian stage of the late Cretaceous period, about 68 million years ago in what is now North America. It is one of the last known non-avian dinosaur genera, and became extinct in the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event 66 million years ago.[1] The term Triceratops, which literally means "three-horned face", is derived from the Greek τρί- meaning "three", κέρας meaning "horn", and ὤψ meaning…
