In all fairness, a Triceratops would be about the most dangerous prey item
you can think of (at least in the Lancian), giving a T. rex a hell of lot to
fear. And, even as a major supporter of the "T. rex as predator"
hypothesis, I will admit that tyrannosaurids probably ate a lot of carrion
(as do almost all tetrapod terrestrial predators).
