Mamenchisaurus Posture Paper
I have just run into this two-year-old popular article:
Contrary to the fallacy that Mamenchisaurus could
stride forward with its head held high, study on the
neck bones of a well-preserved dinosaur revealed that
it could raise its head only slightly higher than the
body within an angle of 20 degrees.
Dr Ouyang Hui with the Chengdu University of Science
and Engineering in Sichuan Province said that if the
head and neck span was 6.5 meters, the most
comfortable head position would be within 2 meters
above its body.
Does anyone know the reference for the paper this article is based on?
