Re: Sauropod skulls



The teeth of Camarasaurus are larger and very differently shaped than those
of Diplodocus, probably suggesting a different diet, so one might suspect
the head shape difference to be related to accommodation for eating.

Are there any theories on why the camarosaurid skulls are such a different
shape than Diplodocid skulls? Could it be something to do with sound
production? Or Maybe something to do with where they lived? Please tell me
if
I am on the completely wrong track.
