Re: Stegosaurus Defense



That's been discussed in a prior posting from an unimpeachable reference
work...
The bony plates were shied off the stego's back like porcupine quills.  Any
local allosaur would be so awestruck he'd just be standing there laughing
his gizzard out while the stego scuttled away.
We often forget the role of humor in self-defense.
Simple slapstick, I suppose, but how many allosaurs would get satire?
