Possibly agreed.(best I can do B^)

Absolutely in fact some of them almost half of their length would 
be tail.

I think it would be to flee first and then any means necessary

Unfortunately that is the stuff of hollywood there is no evidence 
that Dilopho-whatever had any poison sacs like a spitting cobra
(they are noticable in the skull cavity of the cobra)but such 
could be in the realm of possibility. Look at ESTASIA for the 
poison. (the other thing in J Park that was hollywoodised were the 
velocoraptors they were actually either Deinonochus or Utahraptors)
>Interesting stuff, Robert!   Definitely some food for thought
