Surely (based on the CM juve) if Camarasaurus held
it's neck upright, you could equally argue that it
should be reconstructed with its tail upright too,
looking like a set of football posts.

And the tail was even more constricted in the original
find, than in the 'corrected' posture (why do this
anyway?). Where's the debate? These are clearly
post-mortem features.
