And then there is Hooverasaurus, a hose-nosed dinosaur that used powerful suction to devour its prey. Hooverasaurus was thereby forced to eat only smaller creatures. In fact the skeleton of a Hooverasaurus has been found with its hose nose choked by an overambitious attempt to suck up a Brachiosaurus! Both animals perished as a result, presumably from mutual suffocation. The Hooverasaurus had managed to get the head and part of the neck of the Brachiosaurus down its gullet, but choked on the rest.
