|Apatosaurus, formerly known as Brontosaurus, produced a lot of wind|
Oh this story from BBC Nature was just too darn good not to pass (pardon the pun) along.
Giant dinosaurs could have warmed the planet with their flatulence, say researchers.
British scientists have calculated the methane output of sauropods, including the species known as Brontosaurus.
By scaling up the digestive wind of cows, they estimate that the population of dinosaurs - as a whole - produced 520 million tonnes of gas annually.
They suggest the gas could have been a key factor in the warm climate 150 million years ago.
