Triceratops

Triceratops is a large herbivorous dinosaur that has a frill of bone on the back of the skull and three prominent horns. In Latin, Triceratops means “three horned face”. These dinosaurs roamed the Earth during the final 3 million years of the Cretaceous Period, making them one of the latest non-avian dinosaurs to have evolved.
The skeleton of the world’s biggest triceratops – Big John – is being auctioned in Paris. It is estimated to fetch up to 1.8 million USD. The specimen was first discovered in 2014 by geologist Walter W. Stein. It is estimated to be 66 million years old.
