Triceratops[1] (a Graeco, τρι- 'tres' + κέρας 'cornu' + ὤψ 'oculus, facies')[2] (nomen a Marsh anno 1889 factum) est genus dinosaurorum herbivororum quod Aevo Cretaceo exeunte vixit. Reliquiae in America Septentrionali inveniuntur. Anno 2010 Scannella et Homer proposuerunt Triceratopem eundem ac Torosaurum esse; haec sententia etiamnunc disputatur.
