This replica Triceratops skull is 6.5 feet long and 4.5 feet wide at the back of the frill. If the skull is displayed on a table the back of the frill is 26.5 inches high and the brow horns are 31.5 inches high. The brow horns are 26 inches long along the outer curve. The lower jaw is attached and no teeth are visible. The skull weighs about 100 pounds.
Triceratops was one of the last non-avian dinosaurs, and lived alongside dinosaurs like Edmontosaurus and Tyrannosaurus shortly before the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event that occurred 66 million years ago.
Individual Triceratops are estimated to have reached about 7.9 to 9.0 meters (26.0–29.5 feet) in length, 2.9 to 3.0 meters (9.5–9.8 feet) in height, and 6.1–12 tons (13,000–26,000 pounds) in weight.
The most distinctive feature is their large skull, among the largest of all land animals. The largest known skull (specimen MWC 7584, formerly BYU 12183) is estimated to have been 2.5 meters (8.2 feet) in length when complete, and could reach almost a third of the length of the entire animal.
It had a single horn on the snout, above the nostrils, and a pair of horns approximately 1 meter (3.3 feet) long, with one above each eye. To the rear of the skull was a relatively short, bony frill, adorned with epoccipitals in some specimens. Most other ceratopsids had large fenestrae in their frills, while those of Triceratops were noticeably solid.
