@ScottHartman @john Oh, so it looks like we (gather gently) disagree on this.

@gay_ornithischians @ScottHartman @john *Proportionally* less, for sure. It's well established that metabolic rate (and so food requirement) scales with body mass^x, for some x between 2/3 and 3/4.

Time for a #SundaySauropod; here’s Saltasaurus in a field of flowers (yes it really was that wide).

@gay_ornithischians @mike @ScottHartman sure is, I can’t answer for Mike and Scott, but I here to talk about dinosaurs.

@ScottHartman @gay_ornithischians @john Strongly agree that for multiple reasons the habitual posture would have been higher than ONP. For reasons, see my papers app.pan.pl/archive/published/a and peerj.com/articles/712/

@gay_ornithischians @mike and @ScottHartman would know better than me, but I think the state of knowledge is in flux at the moment.

We’re not sure how the shoulder girdle articulates exactly, which means there’s considerable uncertainty around the starting angle. After that, erm, well necks, man, they’re really flexible!

My current guess for camarasaurs I’d high - possibly nearly vertical, but I’d be happy to be corrected on that.

I'm recent years I've often needed artwork featuring Morrison sauropods. And I've done virtually none, so I keep on having to recycle this old piece I did in the early 1990s. Over the past couple of weeks I've discovered how to do colour art in photoshop (yeah... I didn't know how to do this before), do I aim to produce a load of new stuff soon.

I did a small series on borked fantasy tropes at one point. Here is the first one.

"The reverse mermaid tries to warn sailors away from dangerous rocky shores, but alas, the sailors are compelled to sail closer by the reverse mermaid's supple legs"

@john Thanks! I started about 4 or 5 years ago. Working on issue #3 now. Meant to send you and Darren a review copy (PDF) but it musta slipped through my to-do list.

Not sure about the Apple side of things, but the Tusky client for Android seems to be working well if you don't want to just access Sauropods.win from a mobile browser.

I'll kick off my first toot with a skeletal of the criminally underrated Camarasaurus.
