Pink Dinosaur #206

Pink Utahceratops by David Tana

21 – Utahceratops gettyi – this chasmosaurine ceratopsian from the Late Cretaceous of Utah (~ 76.4-75.5 mya) is quite the looker!  This year has been a big one for ceratopsians, and Utahceratops is one of many new species that has been named in 2010.  The reference for this cranial restoration comes from the paper by Sampson et al. (2010) titled “New Horned Dinosaurs from Utah Provide Evidence for Intracontinental Dinosaur Endemism” from the journal PLoS ONE. Pen and color pencil on paper.
