    In fact the "triceratops" may not have existed at all. found this by way or roosterteeth

    Scientists: Triceratops May Not Have Existed - Tech Talk - CBS News

    short version, what we "think" is a triceratops is really a juvinile version of a "similar" dino called to Torosaurus

    no big deal, the "toro" had different horns and a longer "shield"....and you have to admit though it lacks a bit of character, "Torosaurus" (Bull-Lizard) sounds cooler than "Triceratops" (three horned face)

    i dont believe that shit. How can triceratops be a juvenile torosaurus, ?? Triceratops is bigger than a torosaurus and unlike torosaurus no holes in this crest.

    With a ten year study into the genus, if memory serves. It's all detailed in the article if you care to read.

    Well what I mean is to me it will always be a Triceratops. They can call it whatever they want to. Even a purple planter pumpkin eater if they want to. It's still a Triceratops to me.

    Do anyone care about renaming dinosaurs? (I don't)
    They ran out of things to find?
    They are, what they were.

    In before lock.

    Also IF it revolves around the Sun, and it has a magnetic field, and it has a satellites (moons), then its a planet. Not a "Plutoid".
