Well, I've seen it twice already and there is definitely a nasal horn
right about where it should be for Triceratops and the
premaxillary/predentary structures seem to be too small for
CHasmosaurus(I'm looking at "The Horned Dinosaurs" by Dodson and "The
Dinosauria"). Perhaps its (like many) a Chimera spielbergensis?
