Triceratops
By Sharon Fabian
  

1     Draw a Triceratops First, turn you paper sideways, then draw a really big head. It should take up almost a third of your paper and be shaped a little like a rhinoceros's head. Then draw a big, heavy body that takes up most of the rest of the page. Just leave room for four short legs and a tail.
 
2     A Triceratops was about 30 feet long and about 10 feet tall. Triceratops' skulls have been found that are up to 10 feet long. Triceratops was built a little like a rhinoceros.
 
3     At the rear of your Triceratops's head, draw his frill. The frill was thick and bony. Around the edge of the frill, draw bony bumps sticking out. Draw large eyes, and a beak shaped like a parrot's beak. Above the beak, draw a short horn. Above each eye, draw a long horn.
