Triceratops is a large herbivorous dinosaur that lived during the Late Cretaceous period. Its name means “three-horned face” in Greek, referring to the three horns on its head. Triceratops was a ceratopsian, a group of dinosaurs known for their unique head frills and horns.
Triceratops had a large bony frill behind its head and three horns on its face, one above the nose and two above the eyes.
Triceratops was one of the largest of the ceratopsians, measuring up to 30 feet in length and weighing up to 12 tons. It was a quadrupedal animal, walking on four legs, and probably lived in herds. Triceratops fossils have been found in North America, mostly in the western regions.
Fossil evidence proves that the Triceratops had many encounters with a Tyrannosaurs Rex and often survived.
