Excellent! Such a classic motif, I love it. I really like the pattern on the Triceratops! And the baby is just cute.

The question is:

Is it really triceratops, or actually torosaurus?

That's really cool!

Sketches? These? Really? You got to be kidding me...
They're bloody gorgeous. Always amazed by your style. :)

Love the patterns on them.
What kind of pterosaur is that in the background? Many thanks in advance.

Didn't they decide that the Triceratops was just an immature form of another ceratopsian? A Torosaurus, I believe. Or did they just rename the Torosaurus to Triceratops?

"In 2010, research on dinosaur ontogeny (growth and development of individuals over the life span) concluded that Torosaurus may not represent a distinct genus at all, but a mature form of Triceratops."

It's not that they found Triceratops to be Torosaurus, but the other way around, apparently... o:

Oh, hah. Guess they decided that removing the name Triceratops from the annals would involve a lot more backlash than just renaming a relative unknown like Torosaurus.
KattoTang's avatar
Guess so. I guess if it's the same animal anyway, it doesn't really matter either. o:

I think Triceratops and Torosaurus being the same is a load of bull.
DinoLover09's avatar
for one thing, Triceratops is larger than Torosaurus, so I can't approve of the theory of Torosaurus bein a mature trike. Also, Triceratops's frill is heavier and wider than Torosaurus's.
