Belonging to the Late Cretaceous, Trigonosaurus pricei is an Extinct genus saltasaurid dinosaur. This dinosaur was herbivorous in nature and dwelled in forests and grasslands. Due to a lack of fossils and skeletons, scientists were unable to reconstruct the complete skeletal structure.
The word 'Trigonosaurus' is pronounced as 'Tri-go-no-sore-us'.
Belonging to the class Reptilia and family Saltasauridae, the Troginosaurus is an Extinct genus of saltasaurid dinosaur.
Paleontologists believe that this dinosaur roamed the Earth during the Maastrichtian age of the Late Cretaceous or Upper Cretaceous, approximately 70-66 million years ago.
The exact time of extinction of this dinosaur cannot be stated accurately due to a lack of adequate data.
Fossil remains of the Trigonosaurus were discovered at the Marília Formation in Brazil, South America.
This sauropod preferred a terrestrial habitat which included grasslands and forests accompanied by minor waterbodies.
Due to a lack of research, it is uncertain whether this dinosaur lived in herds or was solitary in nature.
The exact lifespan of this dinosaur hasn't been quantified yet due to a lack of sufficient data.
Like any other dinosaur, Trigonosaurus was oviparous in nature and reproduced by laying eggs.
Fossils recovered from the sites suggest that these dinosaurs resembled other titanosaurs. The partially incomplete fossil reconstruction was made based on two specimens that led to very little information about the physical appearance of this dinosaur.

The exact number of bones possessed by this dinosaur is unknown.
It can be assumed that like other dinosaurs, Trigonosaurus interacted through visual and vocal cues.
The accurate size of this dinosaur cannot be estimated.
It is unknown whether these dinosaurs were fast or slow-moving animals.
The exact weight of this dinosaur has not been established.
The male and female counterparts of this dinosaur species can be simply referred to as male and female Trigonosaurus.
Like other dinosaur species, a baby Trigonosaurus can be referred to as a hatchling.
The level of aggression shown by this dinosaur is unknown. However, considering its herbivorous food habits, it can be assumed that it might have been docile.
Before being officially named Trigonosaurus by Campos, Kellner, Bertini, and Santucci in 2005, it was called the 'Peirópolis titanosaur' in reference to the location of its discovery.
