Also, from what I have seen, its snout was not all that weak
compared to other mid-sized theropods (such as Ornitholestes).
True, it was lightly built relative to the "carnosaurs", but
that only says it was not adapted to attacking relatively
large prey.  After all, there were plenty of smaller animals
around to eat!
