Re: Sundry responses of Bois



Hi, all!
    It seems to me that by nesting in relatively large numbers, especially
in a limited area, dinosaurs (or canada geese) might "flood" that area with
nests/eggs. The mammals/predators in the area would need to find something
else to feed on during most of the year, and that would tend to limit their
numbers. Imagine an area which could support a half-dozen pairs of
opossum-like critters. Now march in a good sized herd of hadrosaurs. (or
ceratopsians, ankylosaurs, whatever) Could the small number of  "possums"
eat all of the dino eggs before the young left the nest?
