Excerpts: But before we hoist ourselves up the ancient food chain, it is worth noting that the victim was a teeny tiny baby, only five inches long, and a plant eater at that. It was not one of those fearsome man-hunting carnivores that turned "Jurassic Park" into a nightmare. And while scientists cite some reasons for believing that the dino-eating mammal was a real predator (read: tough), it remains possible that it was only a skulking scavenger that gobbled up a dead baby dinosaur (read: garbage eater).
