Re: Tenontosaurs & Dromie teeth



Roger:

    My understanding of the site is that the bones are somewhat
intermingled, and that a _Deinonychus_ tooth may actually be in one of the
_Tenontosaurus_ bones.  I'm not sure, but it may be that the _T._ fell on
some of the _D._'s - and at minimum, broke some of their (_D._'s) legs.
(This is mostly from a quick discussion with John Ostrom last year).

    (By the way, I remember that cartoon - and the theme song....  "...Roger
Ramjet, he's our friend, hero to the nation; for his adventures, please be
sure and stayed tuned to this station...)
