Tracy and Josh,
Aren't the soils (muds) of mangrove swamps usually anoxic and
therefore an unusually ideal area for fossil preservation?
If so, couldn't it be a fluke of preservation. In other words,
perhaps Paralititan usually lived in other habitats, but only got fossilized
if one happened to wander into such a swamp and died there.
I don't have any firm conviction either one way or the other
(non-theropods don't interest me much). Just playing devil's advocate for
the sake of discussion.
Josh will have to answer this. I was just stating what was said at the SVP
and the other person I talked to.
