Specimen: Triceratops Bone Fragment
Age: Cretaceous Period
Location Found: South Dakota, North America
Triceratops, which literally means “three-horned face”, is a genus of herbivorous ceratopsid dinosaur that first appeared during the late Maastrichtian stage of the late Cretaceous period, about 68 million years ago (mya) in what is now North America. The Triceratops had a sharp hard beak and rows and rows of teeth, some having as many as 800 teeth, allowing them to slice and crush all sorts of vegetation. Despite their fearsome appearance, they didn’t kill other dinosaurs for meat, but they likely would have defended themselves well from predators using their 3 horns which featured on one of the largest heads of any land life.SIMILAR TO SEEN: The image shows an example of the single specimen you will receive.
