Hey, that's not fair!
I accept Michael's word at face value. I just wish there was
something written about it. It's so newsworthy that I'm surprised
that it hasn't been published. Lobby Dr. Shoemaker, Michael!
Of course there are *profound* differences between species, I'd be a
lot more willing to accept, say, allosaur predation upon sauropods if
lions were taking adult elephants. Extant animal behavior is, to a
large extent, what we have to go on in our speculation.
