I think this *is* verisimilitude! How often have you watched African
animal documentaries in which lions saunter straight through a herd
of animals without so much as a twitch from the herd? I myself have
seven times. I'm sure that, like lions, tyrannosaurids didn't spend
*all* of their time rushing around killing things, even if they
were cranky with "the gout."
Hey, maybe a stegosaur wouldn't know what a tyrannosaur *was*,
anyway. :) Or maybe the stegosaurs were distracted wondering about
the flight pattern of those pteranodons.
