Re: Sauroposiedon specs?
You should get a copy of the Sauroposeidon paper by Wedel et al.:
Wedel, M.J., Cifelli, R.L., and Sanders, R.K. 2000. _Sauroposeidon
proteles_, a new sauropod from the Early Cretaceous of Oklahoma. Journal of
Vertebrate Paleontology, 20(1): 109-114.
Because there are only four cervical verts, the size estimate is just that:
an estimate. Compared to Brachiosaurus, the cervical verts (particularly
C8) are about 25% larger. The illustration by Matt Wedel on pg. 113 of the
article gives a good visual idea of how much larger Sauroposeidon may have
been in comparison with Brachiosaurus.

Can anyone give me the estimated size specs for Sauroposeidon (height,
weight, length, etc. [assuming that there is an "etc."]). Is there any
of a sauropod, I thought I hear it mentioned that they found one bigger
Sauroposeidon. Ah well.
