There isn't teeth in them, what are you talking about? The bite marks were on the tenontosaurus, not the dienonychus!

No, I'm not even talking about that. Look at my first post in this thread. 4 deinonychus were dead, and they had teeth in them.

The shed teeth were found on the tenontosaurus, not the dienonychus. Unless your talking about a different case besides the tenontosaurus and dienonychus one then your wrong about that.

Yes, it's a different case. The deinonychus had teeth in them.

Likely cannibalism and more likely a turf war that resulted in cannibalism, like these hyenas. Seeing how there was shed teeth, that would mean several dienonychus attacked each other. In other words, much more then 4 dienonychus were on the seen.

Exactly, thats why the dienonychus fought together and later ate each other.

I've already explained this! The raptors likely got to hyped up about taking down the tenontosaurs that the pack wasn't aware at how many loses they were taking, by the time they took it out, they lost 4 members. In most cases, the dienonychus would be more careful but like i said, they got careless in attacking and the giant herbivore took some of the pack with it.
<quoted text>
A single dienonychus couldn't possibly take down a tenontosaurus, even 2 or 3 wouldn't stand a chance! The only way they could have is if there was 10 or more dienonychus attacking. Even then, the sure amount of shed teeth that was found with the tenontosaurus would indicate several dienoychus attacking.
A single deinonychus, with powerful jaws, stabbing talons, and slashing claws, combined with a good ambush? Yeah, that'd work. All It would really need to do was wound it and wait for it to die. Plus the smell of blood would draw in more raptors to help bring it down. This is what komodo dragons do with water buffalo.

Or the tenontosaur could have already been dead.

Did you even look up Occam's razor? The explanation that makes the fewest assumptions is more than likely the correct one (in paleontology we don't really deal with absolutes, hence the more than likely). These raptors, according to all available evidence, were MORE THAN LIKELY NOT COOPERATING. Go read Theropoda, and your mind will be blown away (though he does get ridiculous sometimes)

Firstly:Welcome back
and about the arguements you said they were MORE THAN LIKELY NOT COOPERATING but above that you said "The smell of blood would draw more raptors to HELP bring it down.

But that wouldn't be pack hunting, that would be more like a bunch of animals helping to take down a larger animal, until the animal is dead, when the animals compete over the body.
