Baryonyx diet

"I've read a few things about the despositional enviroment of the 
Smokejack quarry. It's lacustrine/lagoonal/mudplan, but the fish 
remains (manily scales, occasional teeth, fin bones and pieces of head 
plate) are in large sideritic siltstone nodules. An Iguanodon humeurs 
was found near Baryonyx and the fish remains. Could both Baryonyx and 
the fish remains been mixed together?"

I was under the impression that the scales associated with Baryonyx exhibit
signs of partial digestion, and that this was cited as evidence against
casual association during deposition.
