A recent fossil discovery changes the way that Triceratops has been viewed by paleontologists.  Given that all previous discoveries were of single fossils, it was thought that Triceratops was a solitary dinosaur.  But, a new discovery in Montana of several juvenile Triceratops remains suggests that it did exhibit social behavior, living in herds at least for a period of time.  For more information on this discovery, see here.
