Re: Sauropod Necks

Hi, All!
Just a thought - if the neck of an apatosaur couldn't be brought above
the horizontal, where does that put the center of gravity? It seems to me
that would make rearing __much_ more difficult, as the neck (and to a lesser
extent the head) would be pretty influential 'way out there...

Now you're catching on! =) Yet another item to ponder when considering rearing in sauropods. Maybe they did, but we need to be more like Missouri -- the SHOW ME state. =) =P
