Triceratops

     This skull was discovered about 20 miles northwest of Baker, Montana and donated to the museum in the 1930's.

     The larger and more typical Ceratopsians, or Horned Dinosaurs, were first found in North America in 1855 by Ferdinand Hayden during a Geological reconnaissance of the Upper Missouri around the mouth of the Judith River in Montana.

     Since this skull is 6' 6" long this specimen is judged to have stood about 9' high and been 20' long.

     It's brow horns are 3 feet long and the nasal horn is 10 inches high.
