RE: Dromeosaurid behavior........Pack hunting! (long)



They certainly could have, especially considering the fact that Komodo
dragons fight quite fearcely over carcasses. The wounds would have
been very different, though. Does anyone know whether there are any 
signature wounds on the Deinonychus fossils that would indicate
the nature of death? If one or more of the Deinonychus were found
at least partially underneath the Tenontosaurus, it would tend to
prove that the T. was alive when the D.'s died.
