    substantial load were deemed as important to the animal’s survival. One of the movements they primarily examined was torsion (being able to twist or bend, one end in relation to the other). This might occur when an animal decides to twist its neck or shake its head. This relies on their oblique muscles being able to act as a counterbalance to these movements. As is mentioned in the other discussed articles, they also believed that many of the tendons eventually ossified into the sauropod’s cervical ribs and concluded that these cervical ribs, at least in mamenchisaurids and brachiosaurs (both members of the sauropod family) were limited in their movement, due to the ribs being greater in length. However, the shorter length of these ribs in Diplodocus would have allowed greater range of motion and flexibility in the neck. As for the tails, they did not noticed any significant signs of torsion being applied, thus surmising that the tails remained in a lateral posture, contrasting to the neck, which would have remained (due to their comparisons and analyses) in an…

    This period was estimated to have been between 200 to 145 million years ago. During this period the climate on Earth had drastically changed from really dry to humid and even subtropical. Pangea kept separating, and one half of it, Laurasia, broke up into North America and Eurasia. Godwanda started to break up during the mid-Jurassic. Due to this break-up, more new oceans flooded the spaces in between the new lands. This was a very big change in time for animals as well. More oceanic creatures…
