"That's a herbivore. Nasutoceratops."
Kadasha talking about the Nasutoceratops to her family.(src)

Nasutoceratops is an extinct genus of centrosaurine ceratopsian dinosaur found in Utah, USA during the Late Cretaceous period around 77-75 million years ago.

It had a short yet thick snout and large horns above its eyes that extended almost to the end of its beak-like mouth. The horns are the longest brow-horns of all members of the centrosaurine sub-family but rather than growing straight out their horns would grow to the side and then out, similar to a bull's horns.

It shared its habitat with Parasaurolophus, Ornithomimus, and Teratophoneus, a 6-meter long tyrannosaur related to Albertosaurus, which may had been a massive threat to it.


The Nasutoceratops clones are similar to their real life counterparts, with the only differences being shrink wrapped frill holes, sharper frill horns, semi-elephant-like feet, and oversized bodies. Males are larger than females and have longer thicker horns, a taller and slimmer frill (not unlike its cousin Chasmosaurus), and sharper nose armor. The coloration of the clones is dusty bluish brown with red patterns on their backs as well as their frills. They also have blacks tips on their white horns.


During the Late Cretaceous period, a sizable herd of Nasutoceratops moved through a river. While the majority of individuals were heading in a specific direction, it remains uncertain whether they were engaged in migration or simply traveling as a herd. Notably, three Nasutoceratops was observed bathing in the river, displaying distinct behavior within the group.

In present, upon detecting an approaching predator, the mother Nasutoceratops responded with a loud bellow of fear. An Allosaurus swiftly attacked the baby, gripping it in its jaws. The mother appeared stunned and immobilized momentarily, unable to move. However, as soon as the baby was freed, she hastily retreated while the mother bravely charged at the predator. Although she sustained injuries, she persisted in the fight. Another, larger Nasutoceratops, potentially the male and possibly the father or leader of the herd, intervened, causing the Allosaurus to retreat. The presence of the mother, even in her wounded state, was enough to dissuade the predator from further pursuit. The male ensured the safety of the female and the baby by urging them to leave first before he followed suit.

An infant Nasutoceratops, filled with fear, emitted distress calls from inside Claire's Jeep, attracting the attention of a fully grown Nasutoceratops. The calls served as a means of seeking assistance from the adult Nasutoceratops.

Nasutoceratops have shown to be sleeping under shaded area of gas station from heat. As it awakens begins to sharpen its horns against poles of gas station though result cause itself to get stuck and made itself panic as it roars for assistance for its own kind.


Cretaceous period[]

In prehistoric times during the Cretaceous, a herd of Nasutoceratops crossed through a river, while three others were having fun nearby. One of the adult males possessed a broken right horn.[1][2]

Battle at Big Rock[]

At an indeterminate point, at least two adult Nasutoceratops appeared in the wild after the events at Lockwood Manor.[3] Over the course of the next year, they became a breeding pair, with their infant being the first dinosaur born on U.S. soil. The female and her infant were seen foraging at one of Big Rock National Park's camping grounds, only to be attacked by a hungry Allosaurus. After a brief scuffle, the male Nasutoceratops came in to protect his family and escaped with them.

"Rest Stop"[]

While Ben and Darius drive away from an unknown vehicle, two Nasutoceratops were crossing the road. Sometime later, when Ben and Darius arrived at a gas station, they saw a teenage Nasutoceratops was sleeping in the gas station.

Jurassic World: Dominion[]

In February 2021, a male and a female Nasutoceratops were shipped to Biosyn's sanctuary by Kayla Watts.[4]

By 2022, the Department of Prehistoric Wildlife has confirmed sightings of Nasutoceratops in Calgary, Canada and Boulder, Colorado.[5]

Later that year, Claire Dearing, Zia Rodriguez, and Franklin Webb snuck into an illegal ceratopsian breeding farm in Nevada, and discovered a group of caged baby Nasutoceratops, including a sick individual that was unlikely to survive without immediate intervention. The trio stole the baby Nasutoceratops and loaded it into the group's van, only for the facility's staff to discover the missing infant and pursue the activists into their herd of Sinoceratops, Nasutoceratops, and Triceratops. The herd charged the vehicles and destroyed the staff's vehicles, allowing the activists to escape. The baby Nasutoceratops would be delivered to the Department of Fish and Wildlife alongside an anonymous tip about the breeding facility, allowing them to seize it and move all of the infant Nasutoceratops to a relocation facility in Pennsylvania over the following weeks to prep them for relocation to Biosyn Valley. While visiting the facility, Ellie Sattler was allowed to pet one of these Nasutoceratops. Other Nasutoceratops already lived in the Sanctuary and were among the animals that escaped into the Biosyn Research Facility when a forest fire broke out.
