Supersaurus vivianae Mk IV by bricksmashtv Supersaurus vivianae Mk IV by bricksmashtv
Yes because I haven't done Supersaurus enough already, here's a Mk IV! Changes from last time include the addition of the BYU humerus & ulna, which extends the size of the arms (giving it a superficially Brachiosaur appearance), straightening the dorsal column (based on the closely related Dinheirosaurus), angling the scapulocoracoid a biit further up, adding some additional views of the bones, & making a dorsal view. And no, it still doesn't include the Dystylosaurus holotype :p

DISCLAIMER: My Honor is called Loyalty, and my Art is Honorable – therefore I do not take credit for any other artist's skeletal or schematic references used as reference for this image. Nor do I claim them as my own.

The lateral view image is based on :iconpaleo-king:'s skeletal/schematic: [link], & the dorsal view is based on :iconscotthartman:'s skeletal: [link]

How would this place in the top ten largest dinosaurs, if it is this big?

Sauropod Necks Are Forever Underslung (or my favorite, Sauropod Necks Are Flaccid Universally), basically the movement that says Sauropod necks couldn't be above horizontal.

Which is absurd surely? No living vertebrates have such a limitation (not even newts and salamanders), many had necks with plenty of vertical flexibility, and quite a few had bodies that had vertical curves as well. It would look absolutely ridiculous for an animal like Giraffatitan, Sauroposeidon or Archbishop to have a neck entirely horizontal or subhorizontal.

exactly. It's such a dumb theory yet it's maintained such a large following for some reason. Fortunately it's kind of dying off, but unfortunately I can't say Scott Hartman's neutral posture is helping in any way.

Which sauropod had the most extreme neck for vertical motion, would you say?

Euhelopus. Any Sauropod that has a 70 degree dorsal column incline can literally bend over backwards xD

You're welcome, and by the way what types of species are you going to be releasing in the future if you don't mind?

short answer: Sauropods. Long answer: lots of Sauropods. xD
