Contrary to movies, were they actually around at the same time?

To the point that Triceratops vertebrae have been unearthed with Tyrannosaurus tooth marks (which proves that they ate 'em, but not necessarily that they killed 'em). Not sure about the whole "kung-fu theropod" pose. Tails are awfully wiggly compared to what I've read – seems they were too long for the base.

Amazing paint work on the T-Rex.

Looks like a tired old Jurassic Park tyrannosaur (it's a fairly distinctive design with it's spoon-shaped snout, zig-zaggy cheeks and great fleshy eye-wings) or one of the unnumbered knockoffs since 1993 that took the innaccuracies and alterations as gospel. Not so sure about the Triceratops, but it does have the cheek-right-up-to-the-beak that you don't see in many other restorations.

Not too long ago there was a science article that discussed skeletal injuries on Triceratops fossils. The article claimed that a number of bite-marks showed signs of healing providing evidence that the Triceratops survived the encounter. It is also assumed that the bites could have only come from a Tyrannosaur since they were the only known animal large enough to cause such massive wounds.
