First of all... last time I checked, people don't stare at their own feet
when they walk, if they did, they'd fall over (maybe).  Last time I checked,
when people run, they figure out what they're going to step on a good
distance before they step because if they didn't, they wouldn't be looking
where they were going.  Chase someone in the woods and you will find it's not
to hard to figure out where to step, same thing with T. rex.
