Re: Penguins And Rexes

A sauropod ambling by a large rock that morphs into a
hungry tyrannosaur is one of my favorite scenes from
"Tales of a Tasty Young Dino". IMO, rex et. al. may
have been easy to overlook in some terrains, if
squatting motionless.  

The question of maximum traversable incline relative
to body size hasn't been addressed to my knowledge.
Does anyone know of work done with living animals?
