Triceratops, You'll Like It!

It also shows that Tyrannosaurus also had a daintier side. Fowler and his team found precise, even delicate, bites along the front of several Triceratops skulls, and suggest that these are nibbles on the tender meat found on the face.OK, let’s pause and reflect on the meaning of the term “dainty,” not usually used in conjunction with face-eating. But with dinosaurs, perhaps it’s all relative. Furthermore:
The discoveries led Fowler and his colleagues to question whether the feeding behaviour of Tyrannosaurus changed substantially as the animals grew. The team proposes that, with their particularly thick teeth, adult tyrannosaurids would have been well-suited to tearing apart something as tough as a Triceratops, whereas younger individuals may have had to rely on different feeding strategies to prevent them from damaging their teeth.I’d recommend the Triceratops bisque.
