The Coevolution of "Tyrannosaurus" & Its Prey: Could "Tyrannosaurus" Chase down & Kill a "Triceratops" for Lunch?
May, S. Randolph
American Biology Teacher, v76 n2 p118-123 Feb 2014
Students will analyze the coevolution of the predator-prey relationships between "Tyrannosaurus rex" and its prey species using analyses of animal speeds from fossilized trackways, prey-animal armaments, adaptive behaviors, bite marks on prey-animal fossils, predator-prey ratios, and scavenger competition. The students will be asked to decide whether "T. rex" was a predator, an opportunistic scavenger, or an obligate scavenger.
