The Triceratops horridus known as LANE, at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, has square meters of skin preserved from many parts of the body. It was collected from the Lance Creek area in Wyoming. This is just an example.

Wow! Another Triceratops specimen with skin impressions. When was the specimen collected? I'm curious because Triceratops is now the third dinosaur found in the Hell Creek Formation that is known from skin impressions.

From what I read, the Triceratops known as "Lane," at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, was found in Wyoming in 2007, by a non-professional collector while hunting for fossils on her land. The specimen was later named after her grandson. You can read the article here, in an online newsletter from the museum.
