Since deers can eat meat, Im no longer surprised with this. And I thing that reptiles are sometimes more adaptable in food intake than mammals

i read that thing, & i still don't think it ate meat. i can believe that it's jaws were able to crunch through bone, but who's to say it did? wouldn't it make more sense for it to use those strong jaws to crunch through tree bark? that to me, is more likely than Triceratops eating meat.

sincerely, even when they thought it was a herbivore, people knew it's jaws could crunch through bone. why would it's jaw suddenly become weak when it starts to eat meat? anyway, deers don't have bone crunching jaws, they don't need them to EAT SONGBIRDS. (they are known to do so)

i never said it's jaws became weak when eating meat. i'm just saying Triceratops likely used the strong jaws to crunch through bark & snap off branches.

You didn't say they became weak, but you said they were too weak to crunch through bone. However, if they could crunch bark and break branches, it could aswell crush hollow and thin bones. It's not going to bite through thick and solid bones like his own, of course, but when eating meat it's most likely that Triceratops acted like deers, boars, pigs, bovines, and other faculative carnivores, nipping at soft meat or eating extremely small animals like songbirds.

no, i never said they were too weak to crunch bone, i said they COULD. But it just makes more sense if Triceratops crunched bark.

Yeah like i said it probably didn't use them to crunch big, thick and solid bones either way. But i still sthink it ate meat somehow.

But what about their teeth? Those teeth ain't suppose to chew flesh or bone, right?
