Re: dino quiz

I think they meant 70 tons not 7 and the answer they are looking for is the Brachiosaurus. I called and e-mailed the station and they informed me in no uncertain terms that they had double and triple checked their facts and that I was mistaken not them. After all I've only written one book on dinosaurs and they are a news television station.

The stupid! It burns!

That said, 70 is close to the upper extreme of published estimates. Try half that for a realistic number.

7 tons, on the other hand, is equivalent to a reasonably large bull elephant...
