Re: Breakable dino eggs - big...
As you know, the shape of doodoo (coprolites) is also determined
by the degree of compaction it acheives in the dinosaurs gut tract. Look
at "cow patties" vs horse turds. I would not bet on the height vs the
amount of splat on impact idea, but its as good as any other guess. Maybe
you are right and they squatted. Just imagine an Ultrasaurus squatting to
get rid of bodily wastes. Boggles the mind.
By the awy you dinophiles, the Nature Company, with, probably a
local outlet near you, has a fantastic poster in color of a Bronto
standing on a modern road blocking traffic. Don't fail to see it if you
get a chance. Size is way off-more an Ultrasaurus or Seismosaurus but a
great poster especially for kids like me.
