While you are watching an old movie about dinosaurs, you notice that they all drag their tails and their legs are sprawled out to the sides of their bodies. Moreover, the carnivorous dinosaurs swallow their prey whole. You turn to a friend and say, "See how those dinosaurs are behaving? That's all wrong." Your friend is skeptical, because, he says, movie directors and scriptwriters probably did a lot of research into how dinosaurs behaved.
What evidence do you have to support your statement without using any information from dinosaur skeletons?
