With winter and spring monsoonal rains in ancient Utah comes the ancient ritual of fighting for mates and carrying on the genes to the next generation. Unaware that 79 million years later, their bony remains will still speak of this eternal ritual, a pair of Diabloceratops prepare to add to the gene pool and contribute to the ongoing evolution of their horny kind.

Mating non-avialan dinos are always an exercise in perspective and anatomical constraints. This one looks morphologically believable, and thankfully doesn't follow some of the drawings trying to do the same (dromaeosaurs having sex with joyful expressions tacked onto their fairly unmuscled faces, I'm looking at you).
Hey I didn't say I was an expert on this. Besides, it may work like that for most of the plant eating dinosaurs. While most of the meat eaters may have mated in a way similar to cats. And the Sauropods may have mated, instead mounting, back to back with-out mounting.
