I was talking with a biologist and he mentioned a couple
interesting things about komodos I hadn't heard before. For one, they
can rotate their arms inward and get up into a semierect position for
moving quickly, and for another, they will hunt *cooperatively*. Not wolf
or lion style, naturally, but several will get together to go after a
sheep, apparently. I'll try to ask for the ref.
If these guys have the brainpower to do it, there seems no reason
that a few Allosaurus couldn't have gotten together to take down a
sauropod, or a few dromaeosaurs to go after... well, anything they wanted
to. Bakker claimed he'd got some tracks showing Allosaurs hunting
