The Triceratops was an herbivore from the Upper Cretaceous period. Its name translates to "three horned face." The mouth was equipped with a horny beak and the heavy neck shield was of solid bone.
Triceratops probably used its armor mostly in mating contests, but it would also have afforded some protection against attack from giant meat-eating dinosaurs.
