Re: Dinosaurs burrowed to keep warm



They could come from anywhere along the tail as the bones were so
jumbled, but with digging modifications it would make sense to see
them at the base, if anywhere, to help with stabilizing the hindlimbs.

There is certainly no tendon lattice in the tail, so this would help make
the tail more flexible along most of its length.  The authors do mention
that a "Few ossified tendons" were found.  Maybe these were from the base of
the tail?
