Toroceratops Part 2 Teaser
I'll be revisiting the Toroceratops theory again soon, because I'm a glutton for punishment. I believe I've found a good way to distinguish Triceratops from Torosaurus without relying on parietal fenestrae, although frill morphology does come into play. I'm just making the text sound good, and make sure my argument is sound before I post the whole thing (it's a whopper). Anyway, here's an illustration of AMNH 1201, simplified from Hatcher (1903). It displays a unique combination of juvenile and adult traits, as do many specimens of Triceratops.
