Re: PLEUROCOELOUS VERTEBRAE IN SAUROPODS



Rapidly dumping body heat into the cool night sky is easy. Just flush the
skin with blood from the body core until the heat is unloaded. In the daytime
minimize heat gain from the environment by minimizing blood flow to the body
surface. Giant tropical mammals do it every day, and the bigger the animal
the better it works.
