Description: Mottled gray, brown and tan fossil horn possibly from a ceratopsid reptile. At the base of the sturdy and strong defense weapon, the fossilized bone fans out to what remains of what was probably a much larger bony plate frill on the head and face of the creature. Tip reattached and several pieces reattached at base. Ceratopsidae, had very large frills and horns on the nose and above the eyes. Ceratopsidae is made up of two lineages: the Chasmosaurinae had large eye horns and small nose horns, and the Centrosaurinae had small eye horns and large nose horns. Chasmosaurinae includes Triceratops and Torosaurus. Triceratops was unusual among ceratopsians in that its bony head frill was short and of solid bone; in other forms the frills were larger and mostly open in the center. Kosmoceratops, with its broad frill and hooks projecting forward from the top of its skull, and Utahceratops, characterized by a large horn rising from the top of its nose, were close relatives of Triceratops. The skull of Kosmoceratops is considered by many paleontologists to be the most ornate of any known dinosaur. (Brittanica).
