Tyrannosaur Packs

Tyrannosaurs may have hunted in packs, like wolves.  So the velociraptors may have been more fact than fiction.

Thinking about it, many tyrannosaur species were huge, but they lived alongside even more gigantic herbivores.  So a pack of pack of tyrannosaurs may have been comparable in size to their prey as a pack of wolves attacking a moose.  The prey has to be small enough for the predator(s) to bring down, but big enough to feed all of them.  A pack can reliably bring down bigger prey than a solitary predator.

Also I'm totally up for writing this if anyone wants to ask for it during a relevant prompt call. :D
