It has a space near the base of the tail where the nerves run through, but since these are just bones it is hard to tell what it housed. It was originally thought to house a nerve bundle, but it could be something else. It wasn't a brain though, a brain is a lot more than just a bundle of nerves.

I was raised to believe Pluto is a planet, and then a few years ago they go and demote the poor fella. Pluto should keep his title simply because he's held it for so long. dont forget the hate mail museums get from angry preschoolers. however that is all beside the point. I did not know about the triceratops is fake brouhaha... NO! the scientific community is conspiring to kill my childhood z8O

Took them long enough, too.

Interestingly, the sun and moon both held the title of "planet" for thousands of years. There were once a couple of dozen planets in the solar system, before scientists realized that asteroids were a new class of object and they were just going to keep finding more and more of them (just as they did with Pluto and other Kuiper Belt Objects). Ceres, the largest asteroid, was considered a planet for about half a century, and several others were in the same boat for almost as long. So if we want to be consistent, we would have to consider the Sun, the Moon, and over a dozen asteroids as "planets" as well. Thankfully, scientists rank consistency above history in most cases.
