The name Triceratops literally means “three-horned face,” and it may have had a dual use for its three horns and large bony frill. Undoubtedly helpful in protecting the animal from predators like Tyrannosaurus rex, its horns may also have been a useful tool for gathering food - uprooting trees while its frill provided extra protection from the trees as they fell. Its powerful jaws and very coarse teeth could vertically slice and powerfully pulverize both the leaves and the branches that bore them.
This brightly colored dinosaur makes an excellent child's toy. There are several Vinyl Models available in the Favorite Collection line of soft bodied toys. Mr. Kazunari Araki, a famous Japanese sculptor, supervised the the production of this line of Favorite Collection models.
