Completing the Triceratops

In Animal Crossing

In Animal Crossing, once the triceratops exhibit is complete, Blathers will give the player information about the creature through the following dialogue.

"Well now, if I'm not mistaken, I do believe this means... triceratops is complete! Hoo-WEE! Er, did I just say "hoo-wee"? Ugh. How terribly embarrassing, I sound like some blithering idiot. Let's move on, shall we? Here now... Where to begin? Triceratops... Yes... A member of the ornithischian order, this great beast flourished in the late Cretaceous period. It was a huge three-horned plant-eater, and grew up to 30 feet in length. That's 9 meters! Truly remarkable! Triceratops is easily recognized by its distinctive trio of horns and, of course, its parrot-like beak. Oh, and one mustn't forget the solid neck frill which provided it with fortification against giant predators. Triceratops was quite formidable indeed. In fact, it was one of the very last dinosaurs to suffer extinction. Oh, dear! Oh good gracious! Please, please forgive me. I tend to get a bit carried away. Dinosaurs, you know!"

In Wild World

Upon completion of the triceratops exhibit at the museum in Wild World, Blathers will give the player some information about the creature.

"Hoo! Indeed, hootie HOO hoo! I'm simply awash in joy! Allow me to compose myself and tell you about the mighty triceratops. This herbivore was one of the last remaining dinosaurs, eh wot? This quiet giant is esily recognized by its three horns and its large collar. The bone in that collar was designed to build more muscles in the neck... Yes, as a result, the biting power of this creature was something to behold! Ah. Hoo. Yes, so sorry. I didn't behold it MYSELF, of course... Hoo."

In City Folk

After donating all of the pieces of the triceratops to the museum in City Folk, Blathers will give the player information on the creature with the following dialogue.

"...Stunning! The triceratops is done! Hoo, naught could make me happier! The triceratops was an herbivorous dino that lived until the end of the days of the dinosaurs. Its distinctive three horns and large collar belied its quiet nature. In actuality, the collarbone was the source of the beastie's mighty chewing power... But with powerful jaws like that, plus the horns, no carnivorous dino wanted a triceratops at its feet! HOO! I...beg your pardon! I was so enthralled, I... I spouted hot air like a boiling teapot, eh wot?"

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf

In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, a plaque by the display offers information about the fossil instead of Blathers.

"The triceratops was a very large herbivore, commonly identified by its three horns and large bone frill. Its horns were likely used for turf wars and for fighting over females rather than for protection. While it's true that it most likely lived in the same era as the T.rex, the two probably didn't fight much."
