Derptile 8- The Sauropod.  Sauropods are most notable for their size.  Despite their mass, Paleontologists believe that because of the many air sacs in their bodies, sauropods would have extreme buoyancy in water.  The unique species, Derplodocus, pictured here, however, had air sacs only in its belly, leading scientists to believe it would float upside-down, submerging its head and drowning, which would explain their quick extinction.

Apologies for the totally random and perhaps slightly creepy ask here, but I just stumbled upon your blog while going through the Flaming Lips tag and wanted to tell you that you're all kinds of beautiful =) Hope you don't mind the minor liking spree but shucks, you're really pretty!

Aw man, that’s awesome.

Thank you so much.  That’s super flattering. :’)
