Triceratops was a rhinoceros-like dinosaur. It used to walk on all fours and had three horns on its face with a large horn plate at the back of the scull.

The horns were most likely used for protection against predators. Cornered, a triceratops attacked its predators like a modern-day rhinoceros and that must have been very effective.

Triceratops was a herbivore, eating ground plants with its strong beak. Differently from other dinosaurs, it was capable of chewing its food using maxillary teeth.
