"Samson" T. rex skull study
Bruce Woollatt wrote:
"... the skull in question as preserved has laterally directed orbits -
presumably in contrast to other specimens which have at least some forward
orientation to them (which is being attributed to the crushing of fossils
rather than the original condition in the living animal.) This is supposed
to help refute the "T.rex is a predator" hypothesis."
Samson hasn't been really examined by a dino paleontologist, (we don't have
one starting until July or August) so don't take this as the final word.
Wait for the detailed study before starting to argue about this one.
