Triceratopses are big and relativitly gentle against humans but thet could show aggressive tendences if they felt threatend or cornerd. No keeper or wet has been killed by one but two were close to be mauled when a angry trike attacked the jeep they were sitting in. Jurassic park scientists who grew them could never imagine that this dinosaur could be so dangerous when they saw the little infants but as with all animals there are always surprises. Adult males would kill each other for dominace and had to be kept in groups no larger than six individuals.
The keepers liked this dinosaurs since it was tolerant and also learn to recognize some keepers and could then been taken care of .
Triceratops are herd animals and thrives on isla Sorna with other herbivores like the giant Brachiosaur, duckbílls like Parasaurolphus and armoured Stegosaurus much liked mammals in the Serengeti savannah. Few carnivores dares to attack a fullgrown bull but both T-rex and the large Spinosaurus show tendences for attacking this herbivore.
Aggressive if threatend.
