Article on study of Allosaur bite



ALLOSAURUS, A COUSIN of the mighty
                         Tyrannosaurus rex, was a Jurassic dinosaur with
80 or more
                         saberlike teeth, but scientists at the
University of Cambridge
                         say that despite its ferocity it did not have a
very strong bite.
                                They used fossils from an Allosaurus and
a technique
                         called finite element analysis to re-create a
model of the
                         creature?s skull to see how it killed its prey.
