Ask a non-biologist about the differences between an herbivore and a carnivore, and they'll tell you that it's written like destiny in an animal's bones. Carnivores have sharp fangs and claws; herbivores blunt teeth and hooves or pads.

But an ankylosaur fossil with fish in its belly provides ancient evidence that herbivore diets are more flexible than they're assumed to be.
