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..

Crikey!
