  Well, not to start an argument, let me reiterate how I got to where I got.

  First, we brought up tripping sauropods, which led to tripping elephants. I
think that if we really wanna test this, we should look at the model in
sauropods the _size_ of elephants, and no larger, and then extrapolate from
there. This means, for the most part, titanosaurs, many derived saltasaurine
members of which weren't vwry large. Some rather "elephant-sized." This leads
into comparing titanosaurs and elephants. So the use of the two in the same
issue is not all that random or mysterious, I think.
