Re: thoughts on Dinocephalosaurus (long)

Concerning the length of the neck in Tanystropheus:

If anyone is interested in the topic: In Zuerich (Switzerland) in the Paleontologisches Institut und Museum of the Zuerich University (PIMUZ) they have several specimens of many sizes, among which a fairly complete one with a more than 2m long neck and about 1 m long trunk, and they have also some isolated cervical vertebrae which reach 25-28 cm in length.
