Triceratops

Triceratops (try-SAIR-ah-tops)

Triceratops means "three-horned face" and refers to the three extremely large and menacing horns on its face. It had one short horn over its snout, and two long horns above the eye sockets. Triceratops roamed the open plains for food and probably used its horns to push over tall trees to get to the delicate top branches. It was the largest of the ceratopsians, growing to twenty-nine feet long and weighing up to twelve tons. This plant-eater also had a huge skull measuring seven feet long. Triceratops lived towards the end of the Cretaceous time period and was one of the last dinosaurs to suffer extinction. (Or, maybe not, click the link below for more ideas on dinosaur extinction.) It was found in Canada and the United States.
