How did 30-ton dinosaurs, such as the Brachiosaurus, animals longer than four-storey buildings, have sex?
Experts have answered to this question – they made love just like dogs do.
Kristi Curry Rogers, Assistant Professor of Biology and Geology at Macalester College in Minnesota, told the Discovery Channel: “The most likely position to have intercourse is for the male behind the female, and on top of her, and from behind, any other position is unfathomable.”
Some experts have questioned this line of thinking and suggested that dinosaurs romped in water.
Biologist Stuart Landry believes that big dinosaurs would just fall over on land and would have needed water to provide support.
However, Gregory Erickson, a paleobiologist at Florida State University backs Prof. Kristi Curry Rogers.
Gregory Erickson told Discovery: “It’s going to be very touch and go. It’s an awkward thing.
“I’ve heard speculation that they did it in the water, but they’re not aquatic animals. Just because they’re large animals, doesn’t mean they can’t mate on land – after all, elephants do it.”
