Ah! but no Triceratops bonebeds are known (just unsubstaniated

I see - thanks for that info. In that case, please substitute
Monoclonius for Triceratops in my "hypothesis"!
That is interesting... I wonder why Triceratops would be solitary
where others would live in herds. Apart from the relative size of the
animals & their frill/horn configurations, what really were the
differences among the ceratopsians?
