"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 six-meter long tyrannosaur related to Albertosaurus, which may had been a massive threat to it.

History

Cretaceous period

In prehistoric times during the Cretaceous, a herd of Nasutoceratops were seen crossing through a river, while the other two were having fun.[1][2] One of the adult males possesses a broken right horn.

Battle at Big Rock

At an indeterminate point, at least two adult Nasutoceratops appeared in the wild after the events at the 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 the Big Rock National Park's camping ground, 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.

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 slimer frill (not unlike its cousin Chasmosaurus), and sharper nose armor. The coloration of the clones are dusty bluish brown with red patterns on their backs as well as their frills. They also have blacks tips on their white horns.

Jurassic World: Dominion

By 2022, the Department of Prehistoric Wildlife has confirmed sightings of Nasutoceratops in Calgary, Canada and Boulder, Colorado.[4]

During the events of 2022, Claire Dearing, Zia Rodriguez, and Franklin Webb launched a raid on a breeding farm in Nevada that appeared to be raising baby Nasutoceratops in conditions eerily similar to those of veal calves. Housed inside a dark shed, restrained in cages too small to even turn around, sick babies where simply left to die, and Claire took serious issue with this. As she liberated one of the sick infants, the trio fled across the paddocks, in persute by the facility staff. Along the way adult ceratopsids, among them Sinoceratops, Nasutoceratops, and Triceratops, charged at the activists, but they fortunately escaped. The Baby Nasutoceratops was later seen at Department of Prehistoric Wildlife's relocation facility, allowing Ellie Sattler to touch the Nasutoceratops in the snout. The Nasutoceratops were also part of other dinosaurs escaping the fire in Biosyn Sanctuary.
