These bones I worked on quickly today show a rib fragments that have evidence of being preyed upon. These fossils have an impression of a scar left by a predatory dinosaur!

Largest Dinsoaur Tooth Marks Described

Palaeontologists in South Korea have described what they are claiming as the largest carnivorous tooth marks on the tail bone of a herbivorous dinosaur. The largest of the marks ran 17 centimetres long, 2 centimetres wide and 1.5 centimetres deep. There is also evidence that several different dinosaurs fed on the same prey item by tooth mark evidence!
