Juvenile Triceratops tooth

Sold as Triceratops sp. by the BHI. Normally, Ceratopsid teeth should be considered indeterminate since the teeth of the large-bodied Ceratopsids present in the Hell Creek fauna are virtually indistinguishable. Trusting the ID of the BHI would be to label it as Triceratops sp., but to be conservative (and since I don't know their reasoning behind the ID), I chose to label it as Ceratopsidae cf. Triceratops sp.
