Well, as most sauropods seem (IMHO) to have been adapted for feeding in very
tall trees, they HAD to find a way to deal with tiny heads. You try hoisting
a big head with a big, blood-thirsty brain and big jaw muscles up 50 ft in
the air! As with circulation, my best answer is that they must have dealt
with it somehow. Ours is not to try to say what nature cannot do but to
figure out how it makes the impossible work.
