Re: Giant sauropod skulls





Chris,
Good question. I'd like to know myself what the range of skull length would be. It would depend somewhat on which family of sauropod, but about 4 feet might be a good approximation (perhaps one of the sauropod experts could give a range of skull lengths for the bigger forms).
Giraffatitan probably got up to 100 feet long, and there are some skulls of it known. But even if one doesn't have a skull, one could roughly estimate skull size from other bones.

Just curious, but how large would the skull be on a 100 ft long
sauropod? Have there been complete skulls found of any of the ultra
large beasts?
