Triceratops is a genus of herbivorous ceratopsid dinosaur which lived during the Late Cretaceous Period, around 68 to 65 million years ago in what is now North America. It was one of the last (non-avian) dinosaur genera to appear before the great Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event. Bearing a large bony frill and three horns on its large four-legged body, and conjuring similarities with the modern rhinoceros, Triceratops is one of the most recognizable of all dinosaurs. Although it shared the landscape with and was preyed upon by the fearsome Tyrannosaurus, it is unclear whether the two did battle in the manner often depicted in museum displays and popular images. The prominent horns of the Triceratops may have been used in defence against such predators, in battles between males, or in display.
