Recently on the blog include the legendary battle T.rex vs. Triceratops, and people keep leaving your views and comments, but what is certain is that the results would be very different and unfavorable to the Tyrannosaurus if instead of fighting against a triceratops, he should make against a Eotriceratops.

We could say that if the triceratops was a black bear, the bear was a grizzly Eotriceratops. Were indeed very similar but the Eotriceratops was larger, heavier and older. Eotriceratops means "the first with three horns on their heads." This is a triceratops that has the largest horns all have been discovered so far, something he himself would doubt the Tyrannosaurus Rex.

It is estimated that hast measured 12 meters (2 more than the Triceratops) and 15 tonnes (3 more than the T.) and had a huge head of 3 meters long ... 3 METERS!!

The Eotriceratops is older than any other group ceratopsid or Torosaurus Triceratops lived in the late Cretaceous period in what is now North America and the only known species refers to the Eotriceratops xerinsularis.

Apart from size, age and weight, has other features that distinguish it from Triceratops as one nostril much higher (for it is thought he could permacener submerged in water for long periods of time) and larger horns and near eyes.

Triceratops vs T-rex.

The legendary battle between Triceratops and T. Rex, maybe a little classic, this confrontation itself may have occurred in antiquity, in reality, and this gives a particularly morbid.

In old movies, in books for children and television shows have used this resource, this battle, as an incentive to attract attention, create suspense and tension. In some cases, the T. Rex killed the Triceratops and in other cases it was the other way around ... But in reality ... Who would win both?

This video is a movie made in 1925, was called Lost World. The Triceratops was heavy, slow and with horns that seem to exceed 50 cm. But it was not.


Lengths up to 10 meters long (30 ft).
Weight: up to 12 tons (26.000 lb).
Horn of 1 meter length each. (3 ft)
Height: up to 3 meters. (9 ft)
Speed ​​of 35 km / h


Lengths up to 13 meters long. (40 ft)
Weight: 10 tons. (20.000 lb)
Height: 4 meters. (12 ft)
Mouth with a strong bite.
Speed ​​40 km / h.


There are many things to consider. The powerful bite of T. rex and its poisonous saliva, and its form of attack. The speed of Triceratops that if envistiera to 35 km / h, could go through with his horn the body of T. Rex. The robustness of the body and a collar bone that covered his neck and massive head 2 meters of the Triceratops.
