Re: could / did sauropods drink?

>>"The only moisture available to an oryx in the absence of drinking-water is
from the food it eats. . .The production of concentrated urine,
daytime heat-storage, and nocturnal eating, heat-dumping and deep-breathing
allow oryx to pull off the amazing feat of surviving the hottest desert
environments without having to drink." >>

So, can we assume that IF sauropods never drank, they had behaviors similar to
the oryx?  Would there be any fossil evidence of any of those behaviors?
