Triceratops dead
Triceratops (T. horridus 'Three-Horned Face') is a genus of chasmosaurine ceratopsid dinosaur that first appeared during the Maastrichtian Age of the Late Cretaceous, approximately 68 to 66 million years ago.
Triceratops is characterized by having 3 horns on its skull, a parrot's beak and a large bony frill on its neck; The horns could have been used to defend themselves against attacks by Tyrannosaurus and other predators of the time.
Triceratops was a browsing herbivore and may have played a role as a pollinator of angiosperm plants, breaking up their seeds.
Triceratops could have reached 9 meters long and weighed about 4500 kilos.
Today only two species of Triceratops are considered (T. horridus and T. prorsus)
The Triceratops' natural habitat was in North America, in what is now the western United States and Canada. It inhabited the grasslands and plains stretching from present-day Alberta, Canada to New Mexico, USA.
The climate at the time Triceratops lived was warm and humid, similar to the climates we find today in the tropics. The environment in which it lived was full of forests and large grazing areas for herbivores such as Triceratops.
