Re: Bakker & whiptails - jog my memory please!

In the November 1994 issue of _Earth_, Bakker describes his theories on how
sauropods used both their whip-like tails and their suppossedly powerful
jaws to defend themselves.  Kinda like "sauropod ninjas", with megalosaurs
being whipped, bitten and flipped all over the place.
