Something I like to consider is that Triceratops could have used its
nasal horn to pick up chunks of meat for later consumption, just like
Styracosaurus.

 That makes -   wait.

Wouldn't that function like a ceratopsian anglerfish? (whether the Triceratops wants it to or not)

The Styracosaur lies motionless as the albertosaur draws nearer. Just as it is almost on top of the all-too-easy morsel, the until-now- motionless/herbivore thrusts upward, impaling the unsuspecting carnivore. Now Styracosaurus settles in for an unusual feast..
