The second System triceratops

Another Triceratops was released in 2001, as part of the Dinosaurs theme. It was available in the 6722 Styracosaurus set, as an alternative model. This Triceratops was very different to the first one; it had completely new parts, and its color was sand green instead dark grey.

This version of the Triceratops also appears in the LEGO Jurassic World video game and sometimes participates in humorous antics, because of the game's comical nature. The amber piece to unlock it can be found in "Welcome to Jurassic Park," Part 2 and can be obtained by breaking a wall that has gold light coming out of it in back of the very last part of the Triceratops pen.
