Triceratops has been a favorite of millions of dinosaur lovers around the world young and old. It was the largest member of the ceratopsian family ever since it was discovered by Charles Marsh in the great "Bone Wars" in 1887 at 28 ft long, 16 ft high and 26,000 pounds!. Notice that I said was the biggest ceratopsian?
Recently two animals have been discovered that are even larger than the legendary Triceratops! Eotriceratops and Titanoceratops. Both of these animals closely compared to Triceratops at around 30 ft long, almost 20 feet high and weighing close to 29,000 pounds! Their skulls alone were almost 10 ft long and their top two horns...almost 5 ft in length!
Even if their horns were not truly intended for defense, They are not something any large carnivore would have messed with on its own unless it had no choice.
Now we have three enormous ceratopsians to bring even more wonder and excitement to our already vivid imaginations.
Let me know what you think of these new giant animals. Leave a comment at the bottom of this page and thank you for reading. :)
