How ironic that an egg-defending, devoted mother was wrongly accused 65 million years later and branded 'egg-thief'!

I think they got it wrong & the nest discovered actually had an oviraptor instead of a gigantoraptor.

That form of _hiding_(staying low) would have likely worked on more primitive carnosaurs due to their poor vision and incapability to perceive depth. Tyrannosaurs on the other hand are a very different and much more advance genus of predatory dinosaurs. Contrary to the myth of tyrannosaurs having poor eyesight by 'Jurassic Park', tyrannosaurs actually had very superb binocular vision and could perceive depth; estimated to be 10x better than humans.

Tyrannosaurs could likely see in high clarity for miles, especially due to the height of the animals which meant very little could be unnoticed.
