Description

The herbivorous dinosaur Triceratops is one of the largest ceratopsidae, at around 9m in length and weighing 12 tons. Notable for its large frill and the three horns on its head – which give rise to its name, which translates to ‘three-horned face – Triceratops’ diet consists mainly of ground level vegetation, although their size may have enabled them to knock over larger plants and trees to feed on.

Discovery

Triceratops was discovered in 1887, when George Lyman Cannon found a partial skull with two horns close to Denver, Colorado and sent the specimen to famous paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh. The bones were initially considered to belong to a large bison but, two years later, Marsh realized that they belonged to a previously undiscovered genus of horned dinosaur, which he named Triceratops.

Paleoecology

This genus lived in the United States approximately 66-68m years ago during the Late Cretaceous period, roaming the forests and plains where food was easy to find. Numerous dinosaurs co-existed in Triceratops’ environment, including Torosaurus, Ankylosaurus and Stygimoloch, while Triceratops needed its horns to defend itself from predators including Tyrannosaurus.
