Re: New dinosaur paper: Ankylosaur tail club smacking
Even if there was no impact, I'd imagine that in a defensive situation even the
smaller clubbed ankylosaurs would utilize it to ward a predator off...
especially if they've fed relatively recently, most predatory animals will go
elsewhere and find easier prey to tackle if they think they're in for too much
of a fight. As seen with horned lizards, you don't need to injure your
aggressor to drive it away!
