As far as the Trex being a scavenger only, that is compleatly ridiculous, sure it had large olfactory sensors to smell prey from great distances but it also had binocular vision with good depth perception good for spotting prey. I have heard arguments that itís arms were useless for grasping prey, but if your main prey was large suropods than grappling with them i... [More]
