Just a fact - Protoceratops was on top, holding the
poor Velociraptor arm. So it is better evidence of
predatory skill of ceratopsians than deinonychosaurs.

There is also alternative explanation that the
Protoceratops was already a carcass missing one leg
when Velociraptor grabbed it in a sandstorm.
