Re: Mesozoic biomass

FWIW, I recall something I read once (maybe in Dinosaurs of North America). There was a picture from Serengeti National Park of various animals around a watering hole, with the largest being an elephant. The author claimed that a comparable scene from the Cretaceous(?) would have contained forty times as many animals, the average size being about elephant size. I always thought that was impressive, although I don't recall how the figure was calculated.
