Re: Paralititan (mangrove swamps)
<Careful about calling it a swamp, though. These are generally pretty sandy
systems. Even the muds tend to be interfingered with sands.>
Thinking about Dino State Park and its footprints in sandy soil, do you
think trackways might be found?
Also, the animal would need a major source of fresh water, which would
presumably have to be sufficiently far from the mangrove area that salt
water wouldn't mix in. Any indication of whether there were alternating
areas of mangrove and coastal forest, or is the most reasonable hypothesis
that they were commuters?
