Yeah.....makes soooooo much sense. of course we can know that some triceratops were "gangsters" because they found 3 of them in a pit.

I'm glad you had a good laugh Mr. Chuckles. I actually agree that the wording in this particular article does sound rather foolish. Unfortunately the media has a way of trying to spice of an article with attention getting headlines. A scientific piece might not get much attention but when you try to jazz it up a little bit you'll probably get a few more readers and I think that's all that's going on here. The article itself was actually pretty informative and did shed some light on how these animals may have interacted socially so I wouldn't just write it off as nonsense.

What!! No mention of saddles, riding crops or chaps in the article. Maybe these juveniles were not "busted" yet or early man was riding them bareback.
