Re: Rugops, a scavenger?
I have already been noticing all kinds of apparent misinformation in the
press releases, and I was wondering myself why they keep referring to this
animal as a scavenger. It doesn't appear to have a long snout either (it's
an abelisaur after all).
Even more interesting is that another article claimed that the holes in the
skull could have supported a toucan-like bill! So to tack on another
question here, where could this idea have come from? Just the uninformed
but inspired media again?
