Allosaurus fed more like a falcon than a crocodile.
"Many people think of Allosaurus as a smaller and earlier version of T. rex, but our engineering analyses show that they were very different predators.”
Scientists combined current knowledge of how dinosaur relatives, like raptors and crocodilians, feed with information gleamed from dinosaur fossils to recreate the muscles of Allosaurus in computer models. They then ran simulations to see how Allosaurus may have fed on prey.
