Among the items of interest is mention of possible 
bristlelike structures on Triceratops, suggesting 
ceratopsians in general may have sported psittacosaur-type 
bristles:

"The recent discovery of a Triceratops fossil that 
included skin impressions provided surprising information: 
The creature may have sported bristlelike structures. â??The 
skin is unlike anything weâ??d expected,â?? says Bob Bakker, a 
paleontologist and a visiting curator at the Houston 
Museum of Natural Science."
