I did see a dino documentary once, where they speculated that a low-lying depression, located in an area of volcanic activity, could act as a
catch-pool for any heavier-than-air gases coming from the volcanic action?
The dinos wander in... lower their head to feed/drink, and get light-headed from lack of oxygen in the gas-filled depression. Eventually faint and
fall into the depression... lose consciousness and die.
Other dinos wander over to check out what's happened.... get light headed.... faint.... etc
Then the carnivores find them.... lower their heads to feed... get light headed.... etc
I think that they were likening it to the LaBrea tarpits in that respect?
Dino gets stuck in the tar.... carnivores come to feed... get stuck in tar.... and so on.
I wonder if the location of the find lies in a low depression in an area of previous volcanic activity?
