"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Gr. 3-6. Specially created scale models, detailed drawings, and vintage photographs bring to life the discovery and excavation of fossils and the daily life of Triceratops. There's plenty here about how this plant-eater may have defended itself, searched for food, and raised its young. The dinosaur, built like a tank, had elaborate head gear that some scientists believe may have been brightly colored to scare off predators. Additional information in the back of the book includes a brief fact file, a map of where Triceratops remains have been found, a list of museums displaying fossils and replica casts of fossils, and a glossary.
