No more Triceratops?

In the same vein as the announcement that Pluto is not a planet, scientists have changed how we should look at the dinosaur Triceratops. They have discovered that that Triceratops is we all grew with is actually a young version of another dinosaur, the Torosaurus. Paleontologists for Montana State University now claim that the significantly different shapes of the two dinosaurs is because their skulls change radically as the animal grew older. In their press release, they described how they analyzed 50 Triceratops skulls and tried to find alternative explanations for their findings. They probably did not want to wreck all of our childhood memories of the the popular dinosaur.
