Though the graphics and animation were great (despite
some rather disturbing behaviour of Edmontosaurus largely ignoring a
striding T.rex in their vicnity),

What's the matter with that? I've seen a number of documentaries and photos
which feature a lion or two walking amongst a whole slew of would-be prey.
But the animals don't feel threatened because the intruder's body language
isn't menacing. Simple as that.

Of course, the T.rex in this case was making a heck of a racket and acting aggressively. Prehaps that scene was done to drive home the "point" that the duckbills had nothing to fear from an aggressively behaving 6-ton carnivore because they had seen the same documentry too and were assured that this animal, that had more gracile limb proportions then them and a gigantic maw capable of killing them in one bite, was just a "mean and stinky" obgilate scavenger that was only a threat to yet-discovered dromies (but they had to exist dingdarnit, or the entire hypothesis will fall apart) who had just made a fresh kill! Wait, they didn't have Discovery back then so it would be a moot point.
