Inscription.
Triceratops roamed northwestern North America 70-65 million years ago, when the climate was much warmer and wetter. It dined on plants that included relatives of those you see here.

This cast was created from the skull of our Triceratops, Hatcher, using 3-D modeling based on computer scans.

See the original skull in the Dinosaur Hall
