Caption: Triceratops fossil, 3D scanning. Researcher using a handheld laser scanner to obtain 3D imaging data for a Triceratops horridus fossil skull, found in Wyoming, USA, and dating from 70 million years ago. This data can be used to create computer models of fossils and other specimens, which can then be used for further research. This scanner is from the Creaform company. Triceratops was a dinosaur that lived during the late Cretaceous period. It was a herbivorous dinosaur with a distinctive set of horns and a neck shield. Photographed in 2011, in the palaeontology gallery at the French National Museum of Natural History, Paris, France.
