RE: Bitten Ornithopod on This Side Of Hell?

Even that may be dubious if P.Currie is right. He attributed the great variety of LK small theropods to gregarious behavior and pack hunting among tyrannosaurs. In his view, young tyrannosaurs did not hunt small prey such as thescelosaurs but feasted on carcasses of large dinos killed by adults, leaving small predator niches open for other theropods.

But there is still no reason why a young tyrannosaur might not occasionally go after smaller prey. Modern day predators do this too, even in species where the parents bring them food.
