    Even horses eat meat if given the chance. Any wild animal will eat whatever it can find if it's starving. 100% plausible triceratops ate meat.

    God created the dinosaurs. Behemoth and Leviathan are two examples. There are no more because the Bible is not a taxonomic encyclopedia. It's a religious script.

    While an unlikely theory definitely one of the most beautiful ones imo.
    Modern cephalopods are known for their intelligence, some octopi being considered the smartest invertebrates.
    The image shows a bunch of ichtyosaur vertebrae rearranged in a really really odd way, one theory posits that a large cephalopod who was feeding on the icthyosaur (either through predation or scavenging) rearranged the vertebrae in order to mimic the pattern of its own suckers.

      Bowerbirds build obscenly elaborate yet useless structures as a courtship display. It's unlikely but not impossible that giant cephalopod did something like that with corpses.

    This is the original artwork, that thumbnail has had its colour saturation massively boosted. This is a reasonable colour range for a large herbivore. My only contention is that it seems like a colour scheme more likely for a herbivore living in an arid environment, with less vegetation. Obviously large herbivores can't always use camouflage but they are more likely to reflect the colour of the vegetation in their environment if they were under threat of predation (which we know Triceratops was). Impala and springbok and oryxes wear hues and shades that reflect that of a more arid savannah environment (although obviously the actual colour is less important than the shade because most mammals possess dichromatic vision and thus red-green colour blind, which is the bongo, a forest antelope, is also orange). Reptiles and birds are tetrachromatic, and non-avian dinosaurs most likely would have been as well, meaning colour played an important part in their lives, whether for camouflage or display. I could imagine a small desert ceratopsian like Protoceratops being more likely to be orange or sandy hues than a large forest or prairie ceratopsian like Triceratops. How arid was the Ojo Alamo formation? Maybe Ojoceratops would have more sandy hues but that seems unlikely.
    Additionally, there is the point that truly massive modern mammals have no concerns about camouflage. Obviously rhinos, elephants and hippos have no regular natural predators as adults, while it seems like Triceratops did (Tyrannosaurus), but the benefits of camouflage at that size are questionable. Display was clearly part of ceratopsian biology and behaviour though - that frill! - so it seems likely there would have been some splash of colour in sexually mature adults around the head.

    I believe there were once enormous whale-sized cephalopods in the oceans. They would never fossilise so we could never prove it to be the case, but I just doubt that Colossal and Giant Squids are truly the largest to ever exist.

      Squid fossils are as common as muck anon. Usually it's the cuttlebone part that's inside their bodies that fossilises as that's the hardest bit, but you can also find the hooked claws from their tentacles- and if it's a whale-size the hooks would be fricking huge and robust enough to survive. Even without body fossils, evidence of their activity (such as bite marks in other fossils) would imply their existence. There's not even been a hint of such things sadly.

        You idiot. That's an ancestral Ornithischian trait before they lost teeth to make way for full beaks. They were most likely used in sparring.

            those serrations would normally be interpreted as meat cutters. But the bulb at the gum line is unlike any theropod tooth I've ever seen. Crazy find.

              well except for birds. Bird teeth often have that shape, but they don't often have serrations and usually lack defined carinae.

    The trannivision colors are getting way out of hand now. What purpose would it serve for a large herbivore to be eye rape orange? The excuse for birds is they can fly away from predators.

      I am going to assume you're trolling, but in the case you are a genuine mongoloid, I'll lay it out for you. Most herbivores and carnivores can NOT see the color orange, it's the exact reason why tigers are orange and black.

        This is only the case for mammals. In fact, most reptiles and birds have four colour cones, while humans only have three and most mammals only have two.
        Dinosaurs had sophisticated colour vision. That said, Triceratops was the size of an elephant, so camouflage may not have been very useful once it reached adulthood.

          It doesn't matter how many orange animals you bring up because what they are discussing is that it is NEON orange. If it was a more muted shade of orange no one would be complaining

            yes. A color hunters wear because mammals in general can't see it. Dinosaurs could probably see the color as do other non-mammals, which is why lots of birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fishes happen to be eye-rape orange.
