Re: Blood flow in Sauropods



First - All sauropods were better adapted for rearing than elephants becaus
e they all were tail heavy, had legs stronger than the arms (even
brachiosaurs)


, and stronger dorsal columns even when similar in mass. As Alexander in
his1989 book has shown sauropods could easily rear up because it took them so
little effort to do so, and because the forelegs bore the minority of weight
even when quadrupedal

Second - Dip
lodocus and Barosaurus weighed little more than the largest elephants, so way
would they collapse because they they stood up like a kangaroo?
