Omnivorous ceratopsians - DinoFan83 - 12-20-2019

In your opinion, are omnivorous ceratopsians likely? I think it's a fairly good hypothesis.
They have sharp beaks, very strong bites, and teeth fairly dissimilar to herbivore dinosaurs, and they are very similar in anatomy to wild boars who are also omnivores. I could see a hungry ceratopsian eating a small mammal, killing a small to medium dino, or scavenging from a carcass.
They would also be the largest land predators of all if this holds true - imagine a 13-14 plus tonne land animal that would not turn down the chance to eat you.
