Agujaceratops (horned face of Aguja) is a chasmosaurine ceratopsian from what is now known as Texas. Originally known as Chasmosaurus mariscalensis, it was named a new genus in 2006 by Lucas, Sullivan, and Hunt. It lived in what may have been a swamp during the Late Cretaceous period (Campanian stage). The species is Agujaceratops mariscalensis and in 2016, Lehman, Wick, and Barnes may have found a new species: Agujaceratops mavericus.

- The skull displayed in Lockwood Manor appears to be a mix of Agujaceratops and another genus in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. While the plague digitally displayed Agujaceratops, production designer Andy Nicholson confirmed it was one of two they combined to create a new, fictional genus. The hybrid dinosaur Indoraptor, while fighting Blue the Velociraptor on the glass roof above the skull, falls on the skull and dies on it.
