DC Information
18 This huge lumbering creature is a triceratops, an ancient reptilian beast of the group known as dinosaurs. This result reveals all animal traits.
23 Triceratops are well defended by their thick hind, and can deliver a nasty gore with their trio of horns. More deadly however is a charging triceratops - a opponent must not only watch out for its dangerous horns with the full weight of a charging 9-ton monster behind them, but also be wary of being trampled underfoot by this massive beast.
