Mystery of huge
Triceratops herd solved!

Back to Latest

Thanks to the ingenuity of our chrononauts at TimeBase 67, we’ve just unravelled a fascinating secret behind the annual migration patterns of a huge herd of Triceratops that passes by our research facility.

Every year, during the height of the Cretaceous dry season, TimeBase 67 sees the arrival of a vast herd of Triceratops. Over 4,000 of these iconic dinosaurs pass within just a few hundred metres of the installation, and those who’ve witnessed this breath-taking phenomenon describe it as one of Nature’s all-time wonders. However, since the TimeBase was founded, the migratory source and destination of these magnificent beasts have remained firmly shrouded in mystery.

One of our intrepid deep exploration teams has now got to the bottom of this enigmatic creature’s secret, with the discovery of a gigantic nesting site to the south of 67. Our scientists believe that the herd is attracted to the specific sandy loam found there. This soil is ideal for digging nest mounds, plus it’s fertile, so there’s always plenty of vegetation with which to fill the mounds. In addition, this dense vegetation provides an ideal Triceratops nursery for hatchlings.

Anyone looking for the ultimate time-travelling adventure, during which they’ll get to experience Triceratops and other incredible prehistoric animals in their natural habitat, is in luck! We currently have passenger seats available on our time machine to TimeBase 67, although we urge visitors to book tickets soon, since the annual migration does take place within a limited timeframe. In addition, news about the 4,000-strong herd has resulted in unprecedented interest in this fascinating creature, so we’re seeing quite a jump in the number of dinosaur tourists travelling to the facility.
