The aim of this investigation is to describe the taphonomy of Quittin' Time (Museum of the Rockies locality HC-430), a Triceratops bonebed in the Hell Creek Formation, Garfield County, Montana. Using site taphonomic descriptions with an evaluation of ontogeny, inferences regarding the paleobiology of this extinct taxon are possible. The locality is associated with abundant organic material, including woody debris, large seeds, and other fragments in isolated silty lenses, all incorporated within a siltstone matrix, indicating preservation...
