I bet in the future there'll be a further reclassification and the former species will become species once more.

Jack Horner - isn't he an expert on Christmas pies and plums too?

Technically, Triceratops was discovered first and thus, torosaurus does not exist. Therefore, no forfeit for me ...

There are many research documents on dinosaur research. Scannella/Horner are only two of many researchers.

What I cannot understand is that there a references to fully grown Triceratops in many sources. Were these only partly grown? Some evidence describes an adult Torosaurus as weighing 4 tons whereas an adult Triceratops is quoted at anything up to 9.3 tons.

Since I was a child, I always wondered how anyone could tell the difference between a big dinosaur of one kind and a completely different species. I guess the answer is that they can't.

I'd love it if someone drew an Emosaurus.... it would have some kind of hair covering its eyes, dark rings around them, and a melancholy look... and their mating song would be so very sad. Poor Emosaurus.

But to the triceratops/torosaurus... which is the one that's being abolished?? Is the Torosaurus the young form of the Triceratops or the other way around? Seems to be two differing opinions there. Guess it's like the old Brontosaurus/Apatosaurus problem... and until there's definitive proof, I think I'll be sticking with the triceratops as having three horns. Just because it hasn't been discovered doesn't mean it never existed... there are of course many dinosaurs yet to be discovered.

Indeed. My ex-boss was never discovered, although he came pretty damn close a couple of times before he retired.

Another Peter Principle proof.
Many of them around, sadly.
