Triceratops was herbivorous, up to 30 feet long, and could weigh up to 8 tons. The skull of Triceratops, which is approximately a third of the entire animal's length, is among the largest known for all land animals.

Two species of Triceratops are known, from a large number of fossil remains. In the evolutionary paradigm, they were among the last of the dinosaurs, living in the late Cretaceous period.
