     The first thing you might want to know is what "Triceratops" means. It means  "three horned face".  Full grown Triceratops can get up to about 30 feet long and 10 feet tall thats about twice the size of a rhinoceros! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are about 6 to 12 tons. That's way more than a full size van! Triceratops is a three horned giant.

     They lived in the Late Cretaceous Period. Period. They were herbivores who ate plants from the cretaceous period, like cyad, green thicket, ferns, conifers, palms, and even gastrolith (a certain type of rock.) They lived in an environment perfect for them.

    The Triceratops enemy was the Tyrannosaurs Rex. The T Rex means Tyrant Lizard king, but that is a whole other essay. Triceratops hurt its enemies by charging and inserting its horns (two long ones above the eye and a short one below) in the enemy's flesh. Triceratops was a dinosaur protected by its horns from T-Rex.
