        Anything unusual about the skeleton? I've heard that the 
titanosaurs had extra hip vertebrae, similar to the ankylosaurs (possibly 
for the same reasons, to help carry all that damn armor plating). What 
else is there known? Are they tripods like diplodocids, or pretty firmly 
on four legs?
