3) Problem is - the ostensible reason for the ceratopid's
sickness in the film is the same as that for the stegosaurs in
the book: viz, the animals have mistakently swallowed
poisonous berries while selecting gastroliths. So far as we
know, ceratopids did not employ gastroliths, so the cross-
over is flawed.

As far as I know, stegosaurids haven't been found associated with gastroliths either. Did I miss something?
