If you want to mix it up at Thanksgiving this year, and perhaps skip the traditional turkey, Nature, the International Weekly Journal of Science, gives us some instructions on how to eat a Triceratops — if you were a Tyrannosaurus Rex, that is.

If you want to follow along at home, much like Picture Pages of long ago, check out Nature‘s article. There are plenty of visual diagrams. I am giving you a several week lead time for Thanksgiving, though, because I hear Triceratops are kind of hard to find.

Of course, there is recent news that the Triceratops may never have existed, but rather was just a young version of the Torosaurus. That might be true, but maybe we can still use the word “Triceratops,” like we call a baby sheep a lamb.

If Triceratops for Thanksgiving doesn’t appeal, if perhaps you prefer your tofurkey or other non-fleshy meal, there are plenty of other ways to enjoy a Triceratops. Here’s my favorite song from Kindergarten (1978):

Happy Autumn Holidays, everyone!
