The fossils of the first Triceratops were discovered by the American paleontologist Othniel Charles Marsh, between 1887-1889. Capable of reaching weights between 6.1-12.0 tonnes (13,000-26,000 pounds), the Triceratops had a large, bony frill that protrude from the back of its neck, and three large and distinctive facial horns. Its name, Triceratops, means "three-horned face". When it was first discovered in Denver, Colorado, and originally thought to be belong to a large and unusual bison, which Marsh named Bison alticornis. While an earlier specimen was discovered by Edward Drinker Cope in 1872, it was originally identified as a Hadrosaur, and consisted only of post-cranial remains, and is only provisionally considered as an example of a Triceratops because of that.

Assembled, the skeleton measures approximately 20cm tall.
