Re: re:GSP & dinosaur growth

In reply to Bcunning on dino growth

The Maiasaura growth data has not yet been published in detail and cannot be
considered superior to the other data at this time. 

No land vertebrate undergoes an extreme downshift in metabolic rate (over
30-50%) upon adulthood. Would probably screw up cellular physiology, and
would leave the adults with much lower aerobic exercise capacity than when
they were young.
