Re: Diplodocid duck-and-cover techniques

Or if the neck allowed the head to turn 180 degrees to face the rear in any
manner; side to side, up and over the back or down between the legs.
Regardless, you are absolutely right--the tail would have little value as a
defense mechanism if it weren't in some way guided by the eyes. Very cool
observation.
