Triceratops is a horned dinosaur that lived 68-65 million years ago. It has appeared in a few Disney projects.



Many Triceratops appear in The Rite of Spring segment of Fantasia as adults and babies. They walk in herds to find food. many were seen running when the Tyrannosaurus Rex attacks. During the drought at the end of the segment, Triceratops walks with other dinosaurs to find more food and water, but all of them end up dying of starvation and dehydration.

The Legend of Tarzan

A Triceratops appeared as a villain in an episode of The Legend of Tarzan as one of the first dinosaurs Tarzan and company encounter, when it charges at them.

The Little Mermaid (TV series)

A Triceratops also appears in The Little Mermaid episode "Land of the Dinosaurs" along with Apatosaurus, Stegosaurus, and Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Disney Parks

A family of Triceratops is seen watching their eggs hatch during the Primeval World diorama on the Disneyland Railroad.

At Disney's Animal Kingdom, the spinner attraction TriceraTop Spin features tin-toy triceratops vehicles for a Dumbo-esque spinner.


  • Triceratops was incorrectly shown to have legs that sprawled out like those of a lizard. In real life, Triceratops had legs directly underneath its body like those of a rhino.
  • There are currently two species of Triceratops known from the fossil record, T.horridus and T.prorsus.
  • At one point in time, Triceratops was often believed to be a younger version of another ceratopsian, Torosaurus. This was mostly due to the fact that they were in the same subgroup of ceratopsians and had lived in the same fossil formations, though Torosaurus was more common in the south and Triceratops being more common in the north. However, a study by Yale University published in 2012 proved that they are distinct species.  
  • In the Hell Creek Formation, a specimen of Triceratops preserved with skin impressions indicates that it may have been covered with quills or bristles in addition to scales. A similar type of pelage was found on Psittacosaurus, a distant relative.
