I'm still waiting for the discovery of its natural enemy, the Backhoeiosaur.

        All kidding aside, my concern is that it's natural enemy
        has just found it. 

It's such a wonderful example of how exquisite nature is as a
designer and builder of complex systems," said Geri Richmond, a
chemist and materials scientist at the University of Oregon who
wasn't involved in the study.

"We can draw it on paper and think about engineering it but
we're in the stone age compared to nature," she said.

        That much seems clear.
