Re: JFC-Bloodiest Battle ??
Allosaurus, like Sinraptor and Monolophosaurus, has an exceedingly
narrow preorbital region. All three are like a pair of scissors and
quite unlike Tyrannosaurus with arched and fused nasals. I doubt
Allosaurus was capable of sustaining great stresses, especially given
the extensive pneumatic system enclosed in the narrow skull. Given the
abundance of Morrison sauropods, Allosaurus might have been primarily a
scavenger, rather than a predator, although that is pretty much am
waving. Jurassic Scavenger Club anyone?

I caught only the second half. Turned it on in time to hear, "We now

"...Stegosaurus has as many as eight spikes"? Anyway, this gave me
because I thought for sure four was the limit. Or is it four for
Stegosaurus and more for some other genus? Somebody help me out.
Well it was also said Allosaurus was the largest predator of the time.
Only towards the end of the show were the fragmentary remains of
larger alllosaurids(Epanterias, Saurophaganax, Allosaurus maximus,
whatever you want to call it). Regardless, the statement ignores the
existence of Torvosaurus.
BTW, catch the part one Allosaurus headbutts/smashes the Ceratosaurus
and sends it flying in the air? Didn't know Allosaurs were built for
that kind of cranial blow. LMAO
Stay tuned for my full episode by episode reviews coming soon.
