Re: sauropods: homotherm,heterotherm or gigantotherm?

Quoting Aidan Karley <aidan_karley@yahoo.co.uk>:

      So ... by deduction, blue whales are vegetarians and krill are
plants not crustaceans ? Hmmm, major re-organisation of taxonomy there
which some people would find rather controversial. As plants, are krill
more closely related to the fungi than other plants, and do any other
plants have comparable mobility and speed of environmental reaction?

In all seriousness, as *animals* krill are much more closely related to fungi than they are to plants.
