I may have missed it the first time, but which specimens have shown head
injuries that have been demonstrated to be theropod in origin. I know of a few
ceratopian skulls that show puncture wounds, but these wounds have been usually
attributed to intraspecies combat, rather that to a predator wound. Are we
thinking of the same specimens?
