The original posting on this subject indicated that an
ankylosaur, while in its "mimmicking stance" would likely
resemble an iguanodon.Noneseems to have questioned the logic
of this idea so far. What advantage would there be for a
heavily armoured ankylosaur to appear to be a defenseless
iguanodon? I would expect that ankylosaurs were rather low
on the menu of the large theropods of the time, while
iguanodons were the equivalent of fast food or easy prey.
Why would an animal bristeling with body armour invite
attack in this way? Any suggestions are most welcome.
