"Chinese scientists have unveiled more information about the world's 
longest-necked dinosaur, Mamenchisaurus, dispelling the accepted view that the 
would have been able to raise its head like a giraffe."

"Contrary to the fallacy that Mamenchisaurus could stride forward with its 
head held high, study on the neck bones of a well-preserved dinosaur revealed 
that it could raise its head only slightly higher than the body within an angle 
of 20 degrees."
