Has anybody ever meditated on the thought of dinosaurs with whiskers, or a whisker-like facial apparatus? The though comes to me as I observe the numerous pits/indentations on anterior portion of theropod skulls near the jaws. My view of [at least some] abelisaurs as piranha-like swarmers makes sense with this idea, as it would serve to lessen tooth-to-skull contact with a partner.
