Question: Is Torosaurus just another Triceratops specimen or is it a new and valid species?

The classification of Torosaurus and Triceratops has been a topic of scientific debate. Some paleontologists believe that Torosaurus is just an adult Triceratops specimen, arguing that the differences between the two are due to age-related changes within the same species. However, other scientists avidly oppose this view, maintaining that Torosaurus and Triceratops are indeed separate species, citing differences in the size and structure of their frills and skulls. The issue hasn't been definitively settled yet, so both viewpoints are still considered valid within the paleontological community. Therefore, depending on who you talk to or which research you read, you might get a different answer.
