Our paper "Ontogenetic similarities between giraffe and sauropod neck osteological mobility"compares the range of motion and neutral pose of the necks of juveniles and adults of extant #giraffes and Spinophorosaurus (Middle #Jurassic #Niger).

THREAD 1/15…
@frco_ortega @PD_Mocho @PLOSONE @mupe_elche @SrParamo @biouned @UNED 2/15 The goal was to test whether there exist ontogenetic-related differences in the range of motion (ROM) and posture of #sauropods. Given there have been many doubts casted on virtual ROM analyses, extant giraffes were used as comparison.
@frco_ortega @PD_Mocho @PLOSONE @mupe_elche @SrParamo @biouned @UNED 3/15 Assembling the virtual skeleton of a newborn giraffe allowed us to reject the hypothesis that articulating bare bones in osteologically neutral pose (ONP) could not predict the amount of intervertebral tissue separating adjacent vertebrae.
