        On the subject of live birth in large saurapods, as they are grazers
and need to eat everyday wouldn't live birth make more sense for them. To
have a baby that can run within hours of birth is a distinct advantage to
grazing animals of today.  I always see saurapods being likened to girraffes
etc. and find it hard to imagine how they could lay eggs of the needed size
and guard them and still get enough to eat. Even harder to belive is that
they could lay them and abandon them,  too big to hide effectively and many
animals consider eggs to be a yummy treat. Any one have any ideas,
refferences etc.?
