Rachel , 

I agree that there is a high probability that the dinosaurs you mention
were ' natural enemies/ predator/prey ' . On the other
hand , it's possible that they were not. The fossil record has not been
generous enough to give us firm examples of direct confrontation
between many specie . There is a lot of circumstantial evidence that we
artists lean on heavily , otherwise we'd have a lot of dull and boring
illustrations .How about Quetzalcoatlus/any dinosaur hatchling ?
