Re: live birth

Since apparently no sauropod eggs have been found,  is it reasonable to
postulate that perhaps sauropods gave live birth?  Their huge bulk would seem
to make live birth a possibility,  and huge bulk is an advantage to creatures
that give live birth,  inasmuch as it provides insulation and protection to a
fetus which can be allowed to develop to a more advanced level of maturity
before expulsion.  --Merritt Clifton,  editor,  ANIMAL PEOPLE.
