Re: Rigid dinosaurs?




Since the amount found in the vertebrae is proportional to how stiff the
ligament would have been, the researchers determined it would have been very
rigid in their T. rex.

"We think this applied to all dinosaurs, certainly all saurischians - all
the meat-eating dinosaurs and all the sauropods," Dr Horner said.

If this "stiffness" is compelling evidence supporting Horner's view of T rex as a scavenger is he now going to suggest that all theropods were scavengers?
