Re: Predator-trap theory debunked for Utah Allosaurus site

Of course they are lower, but what Dr. Eberth suggested is that it may have happened to the Albertosaurs as well.

it was a pack or herd and it must have been for DPP, becuse the numbers
seem more dissent, a thousand Allosaurs is not good for lumbering
Apatosaurs etc.

The Centrosaurus bone beds are lower than the Albertosaurus bed. Centrosaurus is Dinosaur Provincial Park Formation and Albertosaurus is Horseshoe Canyon Formation.

But, I think it would be strange to find a thousand Allosaurs in a given area.

It does not a thousand Allosaurus animals, it has over a thousand Allosaurus specimens (individual or clusters of bones). The last count for individuals I have is 44 (Madsen 1977). This number might be higher now, but probably not much.
