Lokiceratops rangiformis on display at Natural History Museum Utah

SALT LAKE CITY — The Natural History Museum of Utah unveiled a newly discovered dinosaur on Thursday. Scientists said the discovery gave them a better look into prehistoric life.

The new dinosaur is called Lokiceratops rangiformis, aka the giant horned dinosaur. The dinosaur was discovered in northern Montana, near the Canadian border, according to a press release from the NHMU.

Scientists at the NHMU and the University of Utah pieced the skull together over several years.  It took them about four years to recreate the skull, including the unique horns on the back of the head. Horns that look like the Norse God Loki’s helmet, hence, its name.
