Triceraptops is the world’s No. 1 favorite veggie-saur, and it is one of the most dangerous land herbivores to have ever evolved. Paleontologists thought we knew all there was to know about Triceratops, but this particular specimens, known as “Lane,” made us reevaluate everything. “Lane” is named for a member of the family that owns the ranch where this mummy was dug. Lane is an excellent skeleton with some of the best Triceratops feet ever discovered. The giant hind paw spread its four toes widely to give maximum traction on soft, gooey ground. The forepaw was five-toed and wide too. No doubt about it – Triceratops was a “mudder,” a beast designed to tromp across swamps and bogs. Lane’s torso was ultra-compact and short front-to-back. The barrel-shaped ribcage expanded sideways in the abdomen to hold a capacious gut.
