T-rex could kick



[ My apologies if the following was meant only for Steven Throop, but
  it was sent to the list address and seems general enough... -- MR ]

to: steven throop,

T rex could kick, as do Ostriches, but COULD NOT slash with his clawed feet,
as they where blunt like ground birds, NOT talons...  But it would ONLY kick
as defense, probabally, not to attack prey in this fashion.

Smaller theropods probabally jumped back on their tails, as do kangaroos, and
kicked out, also, but there is little proof of ANY dinosaur "hopping".

T rex, and other theropods, also probabally kicked at rival males, for
territorial/female dominance, but not to kill, it's own kind.
