Re: new Godzilla 2014-biomechanical problems?



The tallest sauropods very likely represent the limitation in height due to 
circulatory pressure problems as others have noted. And may well be the 
largest in tonnage (maybe 80-100) due to motive power and resource exploitation 
limitations (if individuals get to big a sufficient adult population to 
survive and reproduce over extended time cannot be sustained on a continent). 
But making such claims is always tricky, there used to be calculations 
showing that fliers cannot be bigger than Pteranodon.
