A angleskii, pozhalista.
I think you're meaning either that the sauropod bones are lacking in
well-fossilised knobbly bits (implying unfossilised cartilaginous knobbly
bits), but you could be meaning that there are just not many distinguishing
features to sauropod knee knobbles (I have a slightly surreal image involving
Cleethorpe beach and a "Name that Sauropod" contest. I've got to get a better
mushroom identification book!), or you could be meaning that what knobbly bits
there are don't appear to constrain the possible range of movement (without
dislocation) by much.
