A pyramid which we normally call a triangular- based pyramid has 4 triangular phases (including the base, so that means the base of a normal pyramid is triangular) but a a square pyramid has a square phase to its base and the other 4 phases are triangular. so that can be identified as the difference between a pyramid and a square pyramid.

the difference is a triangular pyramid has a point at the top and a triangular prism doesn't and a triangular pyramid has a square at the bottom and tringular prism doesn't
