Fossil Find: A Big but Deft Predator?

Also, added University of Chicago paleontologist Paul Sereno, it would be a mistake to dismiss the larger predators as muscle-bound plodders. "They weren't ballet dancers, but they would have been something to reckon with," Sereno said. "This wasn't the body of a scavenger. These were active animals."
