Ceratopsians as Omnivores?

This is terribly interesting to me.  The idea that ceratopsian jaw design and dentation suggests a possible omnivorous diet completely changes my perspective on the creatures.  But it is kind of exciting too.  It provides an opportunity to completely rethink some of the most popular dinosaurs of all time.  Check out some of the other illustrations in this Flickr photostream, they are great.

    That is interesting! I would have pegged them as strict vegetarians. Very cool!
