DINO-A-DAY #40: Triceratops

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!

NAME: Triceratops
ORDER: Ornithischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Denver, Colorado, 1887
FUN FACT: The first Triceratops fossil found was a pair of horns. When it was sent to O. C. Marsh at Yale to be categorized, he believed the horns belonged to a kind of over-sized bison.
