Re: Chasmosaurus' weight

The mass estimate of Chamsmosaurus 2280 applies to the skeleton as whole, and 
is not dependent upon the length of the femur which is merely a convenient 
long bone present in many specimens. For example my mass estimate of the 
Brachiosaurus skeleton SII is entirely valid even though the femur is 
missing, and is therefore estimated to be 2090 mm. It is not necessary and 
impossible to have every single bone in a mass restored skeleton.
