That is nothing but suppocion. If it was found an evidence to that, all 
the Triceratops herd must have died at the same time, while protecting 
the young againnst predators, and that would be too much for a 
coincidence! The basis of that theory is that the todays musk bulls do 
the same. Scince we have no evidence, the Triceratops could have defended 
they'r young in many other ways, like many other animals do today.
