A weight gain of two tons a year

Recently, when I stepped on the scale and shrieked in dismay because I had gained a few pounds, I remembered the Sauropods, the world’s largest dinosaurs.

Fayteen and I saw an exhibit about “The World’s Largest Dinosaurs” while visiting the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas.

We learned that a baby Sauropod, which might weigh 11 pounds when it hatched, could gain two tons a year until it weighed 90 tons.

A Sauropod sometimes ate 1,000 pounds a day. These dinosaurs were not picky eaters, the museum information explained. “They probably had to eat whatever they could find.”

After I stepped off the scales and reminded myself that I’m not a Sauropod, I refrained from eating everything I could find that day. I want to be much smaller than a Sauropod.
