The Triceratops is a dinosaur that lived in the late cretaceous period close to 70 million years ago. This particular dinosaur had a large bony plate covering the neck and three horns, two on both sides of the head and one right on top of the snout. The triceratops was a four legged creature that resembled today’s rhinos. They are one of the most popular dinosaur’s familiar by adults and children. In almost every story or movie based on dinosaurs you will see a triceratops, I guarantee it. Even though paleontologists haven’t found a complete fossil of this species, they still have the pieces of skull to work with collected over the years. This beast was said to be 30 feet long and 10 feet high. They weighed a good 30,000 pounds too, Impressive huh. The head or skull of the triceratops grew to be 7 feet long. Scientist are not sure if this animal fought the way they are depicted in films simply because they don’t have to much study since all they have is a few pieces of skeletal remains found over time. One thing they do know is that the triceratopses were definitely part of the herbivore group. This dinosaur is one of my top 10 favorites and I would like to teach you how to draw a triceratops with this tutorial. It only has 6 steps and the instructions make it easy to learn how to draw one. I hope you enjoyed the brief information I shared with you, I will be back soon to teach you again.
