RE: Sneak Peak at Yale Torosaurus Sculpture



  Not to reinvigorate this dead thread, but I have a further insight into the
situation and its applicability. For example, the textured interdental plates
of tyrannosaurids and abelisaurids shows vertical fluting. Does this mean, as
in the use of surface texturing up to the "gumline" in ceratopsians, that the
medial surface of the jaws of theropods were also keratinized or bore closely
adhering thickened flesh in the manner of the facial structured theorized for
these animals?

  Cheers,

Jaime A. Headden
