Re: What would Hitchcock have thought...?
Do highly kinetic skulls in and of themselves prohibit applying
I am relying here on the work of Campbell and Tonni, who published a
number of articles in the 80's about teratorns and the kinesis of
their skulls. It was their conclusion that the skulls were not strong
enough to kill or dismember large prey and that teratorns were more
likely to have swallowed smaller prey whole...
Ah, I follow. Thanks for the followup.
On a related note, I seem to recall reading a paper several years ago
in which the skulls of hominoid infants were found (with talon
punctures) amongst the remains of monkeys, hares, etc. thought to have
accumulated via eagle feeding (ie. below a nest). Anyone happen to
remember which paper I'm thinking of?
