Correct, but nitpick-able ;)  Brontosaurus was the name given to what 
was thought to be a new Genus but later identified to be part of the 
Apatosaurus genus, so it's name was changed. Brontosaurus is accepted as 
a synonym though just so folks could argue whether the Brontosaurus ever 
existed or not[1]  (amusingly, Brontosaurus makes it into the default 
dictionary Thunderbird is using, but Apatosaurus doesn't).

Triceratops is definitely real, but whether ttx could take one on with 
his bare hands and the power of his look is well beyond my ken, never 
having met either.
