Last week, we met the dinosaurian equivalent of a shar pei. This week, we meet a Triceratops that looks as if a clown exploded all over it. Submitted by reader Vladimír Socha, this clearly bewildered dinosaur resides in Jordan, Montana—a sparsely populated place the dinosaur must have escaped to out of embarrassment.
