re: Long Bone Scaling in Neosauropod Dinosaurs
Says Colin McHenry, the proud Novocastrian...
That's just so wierd. If I didn't know any better, I'd say that the
isometric scaling strongly suggested an aquatic habit....
It does get you thinking, doesn't it? If neosauropods were "stilt-like
walkers", maybe the limbs were habitually used as... stilts?
Interestingly, titanosaurs were excluded from the study. These guys had a
'wide-gauge' stance, in which the limbs were placed much farther from the
midline than other neosauropods.
