NEWCASTLE, WY (CNN) -- Scientists in Wyoming are digging up the skeletal remains of three so-called "triceratops" believed to be about 67-million years old.
A rancher led the experts to a spot about 200 miles from Cheyenne.
Scientists say there are three skeletons here, one probably a child and one who likely met a gruesome death from a terrifying predator. They say the trio could be male and female and their young.
The triceratops were a three-horned, plant-eating dinosaur considered one of the last of the giant reptiles.
The excavation began in may and is expected to take about a month.
