More Tyrannosaur Hunting
Eluding the idea of hunting structure entirely, I kinda like the idea in
which the large 12 meter Tyrannosaurs did their damage much like sharks
rather then lions, instead of wrestling and their rather large prey down
like lions do, I propose Tyrannosaurs using gurrellia tatics of moving in to
cause mortal damage and then backing off till another chance presents itself
or simplying waiting for the badly injured victim to bleed out. Could
explain the formidible oral weaponary of Tyrannosaurs. After all,
biomechnics seems to frown on the idea on 6-ton animals struggling to bring
each other down, damage done, even from the slightest of mistakes could be
massive. I suppose more Tyrannosaurs makes this easier.
I can just picture it: "Hey Bob! Wave those puny arms to distract him while
I take a bite out of his hip!" Well, not exactly but something like that...
Of course, it could be that the large Tyrannosaurs served more as bodyguards
and bullies in the proposed social hunting model, much like male lions.
Which do little hunting but are extremely useful when it comes to protecting
the kill from potential rival clans or maybe even species that might play
the pesky-Heyna role (Albertosaurs maybe). Of course, I am just waving the
flag of utter speculation. No one idea is more likely then the next, given
the dirth of actual facts.
Unless we have one mother of a mudslide or a sand dune to bury some
Tyrannosaurs and associated prey during hunting, I think we for now, can
