The Three Horned King by Fragillimus335 The Three Horned King by Fragillimus335
Ceratopsipes is known only from a set of footprints, but they are exceptionally large. They are up to 80cm wide compared to Triceratops at 50cm. Although footprints can only give general estimates of size, these prints could indicate a ceratopsian of ~12 meters in length, and 15-20 tons in weight...thats pretty big!

Based largely on Pheaston's amazing Triceatops reconstruction.

So how do we know this was a new genus, and not a really big, old, Triceratops?

We don't, but it would be quite a stretch for one adult Trike to be 4 times the weight of an average one.

Well, something similar to that happened with Alamosaurus.

Very nice.I didn't heard about this species before.I did heard about another ceratopsian which is bigger that is Eotriceratops.All i can say is...Triceratops is big enough for its species and also it can fight with any theropod one on one.So Eotriceratops or
Ceratopsipes is more dangerous for any theropod.If these ceratopsians are really that big,then the sauropods will be more enormous.

Yes, Ceratopsipes was more than a match for any theropod yet discovered.
