Papo - Triceratops
The name "Triceratops" literally means "three-horned-face" (in Greek). While popular theory has always depicted that the 3 horns were strictly defensive weapons, new studies have expanded their use to include courtship and dominance displays (much like modern deer antlers). Bearing a large bony frill, three horns on the skull, and a large four-legged body, exhibiting convergent evolution with rhinoceroses and bovines. Triceratops is the most familiar genus of the Ceratopsidae, a family of large, mostly North American horned dinosaurs. Triceratops was traditionally placed within the "short-frilled" ceratopsids, but modern cladistic studies show it to be a member of the Chasmosaurinae which usually have long frills.
