@mike @john We do here. Turns out sauropod tails go horizontal when I made other (IMO improved) assumptions about foot and pectoral posture, so the synergy with the biomechanical improvement makes it a strong argument to me. Also, while hadrosaurs and prosauropods once got the "tails arched in the air" treatment, those are clearly wrong, so with it not being normal to dinosaurs and there being no extant analog I think the "tail-arching up" model is coasting on social inertia at this point.
A Mastodon instance for sauropod appreciators everywhere. Our code of conduct is don't be a jerk.
