Where's it's nostrils?

They're at the top of what use to be a horn but is now covered in flesh.

Huh, why on earth would it's nostrils be like that?  Is it like a hippo?

I've only just heard of this theory myself:(. I saw a comment saying maybe it could be a resonating chamber, like the crest of Parasaurolophus only instead of bone it's a nasal cavity, but I don't know what the professional consensus is, nor who came up with the idea:(

Well, if it's so, it would've definitely been weird.......and interesting.

Compared to most of Mother Nature's concoctions, what we would define as weird is pretty tame🤔

Yeah.  With nature involved, you can throw normalcy out the window.

Wow... disturbingly huge...
Haven't seen any titanotheres lately. Strange nostril placing, but the powerful neck and shoulder muscles quickly make me forget about that.

Beautiful Embolotherium, I like the portrait of the powerful musculature around the neck and shoulders.

What a peculiar member of the genus.

You made the nostrils up on the horn? Looks strange but possible. Is this your own theory or of someone other?
This theory was widely circulated in literature, notably in Russian and Chinese!
