RE: How Did Hadrosaurs Survive? (Was: Hadrosaur "mummy" questions)



From: "Williams, Tim" <TiJaWi@agron.iastate.edu>

Yeah, but according to your scenario Mommy and Daddy were targeted by >adult _Tyrannosaur rex_. What does Mommy Hadrosaur do when a >tyrannosaur sees it sitting atop a nest, or feeding its nestlings? - >run, and leave her babies to their own devices.

Would they run, though? With the likes of the brooding _Citipati_ caught in the sandstorm or the nesting _Maiasaura_ caught in who-knows-what, (some) dinosaur parents very much seem to be devoted to their young.
Just a thought...
