Re: Heterothermy in elephants: Sauropods too?

Why gol darn and heck, I've been pointing out that them there 
tachyenergetic sauropods didn't have to worry none about overheating because 
they could 
use their massive mass to story body heat in the day and dump it at night by 
letting there body temperatures fluctuate tween night and day since way back 
in the last century. Pretty obvious actually.
