Triceratops are herbivorous dinosaurs with a specific, well-known appearance. This massive animal is the size of an elephant, with a huge head, decorated with three horns and a wide bone collar. The habitat of Triceratops was the plains of Laramidia - the western part of North America, elongated from north to south.

Triceratops fed on tough vegetation, which they consumed in huge quantities. After all dinosaur weighed at least 8 tons! Therefore, the dental system was very complex.

The teeth of Triceratops grew constantly. The old teeth did not fall out, but fused together with the new ones, forming a kind of dental "turret" of 3-5 teeth. Such "turrets" were bonded into batteries of 7 or 8, and there could be from 3 to 5 “dental batteries” on each half of the jaw, depending on age. Together, this gives up to 800 teeth! These are ral millstones for grinding vegetation.
