I forget the dinosaur's name. A lot of the names have changed since I a kid too. The one with long cavities up from the nose, like a horse head with extra sinuses up the front, is a good candidate. The theory is that a mixture of the chemicals from mouth and nose would ignite externally.
Here's one pic of that specimen. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-KHwMrJjgC9...urolophus6.jpg
I wanted to find a better pic, but dinner is on the stove.
Heehee, I love this topic...but it's only because I want a little dino as a pet.
