Re: Dino Noises*
One important point frequently overlooked in the noise production of
dinosaurs is the affects of soft tissue on sound. Tissue has its own
resonating frequency and dampening effects that must be taken into
account. Thus the PVC Parasaurolophus noise probably did not sound
anything like the actual noise. Lining the PVC with a tissue-like
material and increasing the volume of air to approximate the volume of
the Parasaurolophus lungs - not Weishampels' puny lungs (by dinosaur
standards) would be a start.
