T. rex vs. Alamosaurus



<<How could T. Rex have attacked sauropods? The only sauropod in North America
in the Maastrichtian was Alamosaurus and this lived further south than what
is generally considered rex country, although only from fossil evidence...>>>

Scott Sampson's team from the University of Utah excavated a large (Sue sized) 
theropod this past summer.  The excavation was a tenth of a mile from the 
original Alamosaurus site and just a few meters up section within the North 
Horn Formation.  Large teeth have also been found lower in the section (in the 
North Horn Formation), so I think it is safe to assume the two animals 
coexisted within the same habitat.
