Giddyup, Tricerajeep!

Meet "Adrianne", the Triceratops-Jeep mashup

What could be better than seeing a living Triceratops? Riding one, of course. Doctor Who showed us that much.

Sadly, old “three horned face” is long gone. I wouldn’t count on the dinosaur to be brought back to us by way of genetic experiments or alien arks filled with dinosaurs. But don’t despair, Triceratops fans. An art group called Wreckage International combined Triceratops with a Jeep to create “Adrianne,” a working autosaurus. You can hear about how Adrianne was created here. No word yet on whether the next model will resemble Torosaurus.
