Occurrence of chelonians has been reported from the Lameta Formation of Pisdura. It is likely that other carnivorous reptiles also must have been thriving in

Why are the chelonians automatically assumed to be
predaceous?

That depends on what the word 'other' is meant to convey. They may be talking about other reptile species (some of which were carnivorous) rather than other carnivores specifically. Perhaps the word 'carnivorous' should have been in brackets?
