    Newly Discovered Dinosaur Named for BLM-Utah Paleontologist

    BLM-Utah’s Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument paleontologist, Dr. Alan Titus, now has a dinosaur named after him. The British scientific journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B announced the discovery of Nasutoceratops titusi, a new species of horned dinosaur unearthed at the Monument.
