"Most deadly predator..."
I suspect that the factor that leads authors to name some species or other
as the "most deadly predator" is anthropocentric. What they mean is "most
scary predator" -- to THEM.
If the articles in question had been written by mice, the shrew would be
named as the most deadly modern predator, while Coelophysis would get the
honors as the most efficient prehistoric monster. T. rex, Utahraptor and so
on would be ignored as irrelevant curiosities.
