“Dino Sunday Series 🦖🦕

Fun fact: The Triceratops had a hard, parrotlike beak.

One of the lesser-known facts about dinosaurs such as Triceratops is that they had birdlike beaks and could clip off hundreds of pounds of tough vegetation (including cycads, ginkgoes, and conifers) every day.

They also had “batteries” of shearing teeth embedded in their jaws, a few hundred of which were in use at any given time.

As one set of teeth wore down from constant chewing, they would be replaced by the adjacent battery, a process that continued throughout the dinosaur’s lifetime.

Could you imagine how many bones you could chew through if you had a beak like a Triceratops? 🤔”
