    temperatures of sauropods contributed to the amounts and types of foods required for energy. It is supposed that the long necks and size of these dinosaurs allowed for eating copious amounts of highly fibrous plant-life during a single feeding (Barrett, Pm 2014). Similar to a previously mentioned article, these scientists examined the ligament system found in the neck of the Rhea Americana (a large, flightless bird found in South America – alike in appearance and structure to the common ostrich). The Rhea Americana contains an extended ligament which is attached to the neural spines at the cervical point. Using both Apatosaurus and Camarasaurus as their target subjects, they hypothesized a reconstruction of this same ligament structure along the spine, extending through the neck of these sauropods. They concluded that at least for Apatosaurus and Camarasaurus, the force of tension caused by this ligament structure would have proved efficient for a sauropod when tilting its neck downward. These ligaments would have remained taught with the neck and head being extended forward in a lateral position, slightly sloping downwards (Tsuihiji, T. 2004). In this article, the scientists set out to examine the mechanical functionality of sauropod neck and tail postures, as well as their morphology. To do so, they looked at mammals and crocodiles alive today that have similar structures in their physiology and the varying loads that these parts of the animals are capable of sustaining…
