Re: Blood flow in Sauropods



This raises another interesting question:  How good was the viual accutance
of saropods and other potential prey dinos?  As we know from contemporary
raptors, the visual accutance (a  function of the desity of receptor cells in
the retina -- rods and cones) in these hawks is about ten times or greater
than in humans.

If you have a long neck, are potential prey, and have to see your predator
from a long way off to avoid them, what does this imply about visual
abilities adn other sensors (olfactory, etc.)?

Just a thought to keep you from doing any real work.
