On Tuesday, the Scottish National Party launched their general election manifesto.
The SNP, in addition to dominating the Scottish Parliament also held 54 of 59 Westminster seats in Scotland at the end of the 2015-17 parliament.
Having been in power for just over a decade, they need to show they have fresh ideas are to demonstrate they're not a tired party.
Perhaps this what motivated them to choose this image for the back cover of their manifesto.

I assume he needs the braille #SNPmanifesto due to having a Triceratops lodged in his eye. #SNP https://t.co/fbCWOyilI4 — Mark Grimshaw (@Mark Grimshaw)
Other images on the back page of the manifesto show children doing more fun things.
Chasing this up with the SNP, indy100 was told:
It's just a cute picture of a kid playing. Nothing else to it.
indy100 has been unable to locate any living triceratops for comment.
