What your point? I do not remember Henderson making any claim that a
sauropod standing in mud or wading in water w/ a muddy bottom or even
wading in water 2 m deep would tip over. "Swamp" does not = deep water.
Also, Henderson apparently assumed that the various air sacs were filled
to max capacity. Changes the picture some when you assume that a
creature that found itself a little unstable might naturally let a
little air out...
