    According to him, it couldn´t have been an active big-game predator because it had bad eyesight:

    I'm not convinced BTW... modern day scorpions have bad eyesight too and some are even blind and manage quite well. Same with many aquatic predators. It may have been mostly a scavenger, who knows, but I don´t think eyesight alone is proof of either.
