The size of a Triceratops is the size of an African elephant or a small bus from the websites i went to the size has differed. Also it is 10 feet tall and 8-9 meters long (which is 26-30). That is taller than a human and if they were around i would stay away from them. This creature is a herbivore which means it eats plant life and not meat. This animal fed off of shrubs and other small leafy plants. A relative of the Triceratops is the Laquintasaura which was a carnivore (this means it eats meat).
