Presumably they'd have less trouble with juveniles.  Which is what I'd
expect them to go for, in any event.

We can't prove anything at all.  All of this is speculation, and can never
be anything but.  We still don't know what was up with the fighting dinos in
Mongolia, for example, and even though we know a hadrosaur healed wounds
from a tyrannosaur bite we still don't know how common active predation on
hadrosaurs by tyrannosaurs was.  We never will know these things, and the
best we can do is make reasonably informed guesses.
Oh my God!  They've killed Kosh!  You bastards!
