Triceratops is one of the most recognized and famous dinosaurs among both young and old! The name Triceratops translated from Greek means "three-horned face." It roamed North America during the Late Cretaceous and was most likely the last known non-avian dinosaur genera to survive before the great extinction event, about 65 million years ago. The largest predator that Triceratops had was probably T-rex. Triceratops possesses many similarities to our modern-day rhinoceros.
The functions of the frills and three distinctive facial horns on its head have long inspired debate. Scientists believe that they could have been used for fighting, courtship or decorative/ identification purposes between individuals.
Triceratops are estimated to have reached up to 29.5 ft in length, 9.8 ft in height, and weighing up to 13,000- 26,000 lb making them one of the largest land animals that have ever lived.
