RE: Elephants and hyenas
I think that the ways of birds and crocodylia are our best models for
parental care and/or defense of the young within the dinosauria.
Dinosaurs were not mammals and mammal behaviour shouldn't be used as a
guide to what we consider dinosaur behaviour. Tempting as it is.

Here's a series of photos taken of a hyena attack on a young elephant
and the adult elephants defense of the young one. I won't draw too
close a parallel to dinosaurs, but such events are not often recorded
and might be of interest to the dino paleo community.
