A triceratops (ytepka in the Chultan language[6]) was a gargantuan, herbivorous, herd dinosaur.[2]


These massive dinosaurs had a bony plate on their six-foot-long skull for defense, with two long horns on the top and a shorter horn at the nose. Their bodies extended for about 25 feet (7.6 meters), and they weighed around ten tons (nine metric tons).[2]


Triceratops had especially short tempers for herbivores, and would charge, trample, and skewer any creature invading their territory.[2] When defending their young, they were intelligent enough to form a circle around them, horns facing outwards.[5]


A triceratops could trample creatures smaller than it; it would gore anything else.[2]


In Chult, where these dinosaurs were common, there was a secret society, the Triceratops Society, named after them, known for leaving iron triceratops figurines as signs of warning.[6]
