Caption: Triceratops fossil skull. Museum display of a Triceratops horridus fossil skull, found in Wyoming, USA, and dating from 70 million years ago. 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. It could reach a length of up to nine metres, with the two main horns up to a metre long. A smaller horn was present on the snout. It may have used its horns and its neck shield in defence or in courtship and dominance displays. Photographed in 2011, in the palaeontology gallery at the French National Museum of Natural History (MNHN), Paris, France.
