Re: Long-necked stegosaur, head tail mimicry?

We assume, like sauropods,
that stegosaurs are relatively slow moving, and the phrase "sauropod-mimic"
is being freely used, so maybe, just maybe, this particular stegosaur was
doing just that. Not moving very much but being able to cover a lot more
ground whilst eating, moving the long neck in an arc, maximising the energy
intake without moving very much. Just a thought.

But is it even the case that holding the neck far out and moving it around costs less energy than walking a step?
