A whole triceratops family

Triceratops is a ceratopsian, a horned dinosaur. It gets its name from the three horns in its face and is the most well known ceratopsian, and one of the last dinosaurs too. It is one of the most common dinosaurs in the game and appears in several levels. A herd is seen drinking in a lake. They are blue and will move at two speeds. In the normal one, they just walk, but in the charge mode the dino closes its eyes, lowers its head and starts stampeding. They don't harm the player but slow him and they'll also destroy anything in their range.A Triceratops family is seen at the end of the game in the Giant UFO. They don't appear in level 2 but there a skeleton of them. They are common in Planet D. When Triceratops are angry, they make a sour face, forming their nickname: Sour Faces.

Real LifeEdit

Triceratops was a rhinoceros-like dinosaur. It walked on four sturdy legs and had three horns on its face along with a large bony plate projecting from the back of its skull (a frill). One short horn above its parrot-like beak and two longer horns (over 3 feet or 1 m long) above its eyes probably provided protection from predators. The horns were possibly used in mating rivalry and rituals. It had a large skull, up to 10 feet (3 m) long, one of the largest skulls of any land animal ever discovered. Its head was nearly one-third as long as its body. Triceratops hatched from eggs. Triceratops was about 30 feet long (9 m), 10 feet tall (3 m), and weighed up to 6-12 tons. It had a short, pointed tail, a bulky body, column-like legs with hoof-like claws, and a bony neck frill rimmed with bony bumps. It had a parrot-like beak, many cheek teeth, and powerful jaws.
