If tyrannosaur intraspecific combat was anything like that of crocs,
then perhaps they sidled up to each other and swung their heads sideways
and down slightly, rather than risk using those jaws on each other. This
might also explain the hypothetical hornlet on the jugal. I've seen a
painting of ceratosaurs doing this, fighting giraffe-style (although
they were facing head-to-tail rather than both in the same direction).
