Re: Sauropod drinking



There's been discussion recently about the problems of sauropods getting
water up their throats if they were bending over to drink.  There's even
been some discussion that brachiosaurs might have trouble getting their
heads down that far.  Couldn't these animals have waded into water deep
to, say, their elbows or shoulders and reduced the problems caused in both
scenarios?  Of course this would require a lot of water, but they might
have sought out these larger pools anyway because of the large needs of
the herd (pod, bront, whatever ;)
