The Death PoseWhen found, many dinosaur fossils display a strange pose: their necks are bent dramatically backward. Seeing this position, early dinosaur experts concluded that the animals could hold their necks this way in life. But it seems more likely that the pose reflects something that happened after the animal died.
Shrinking ligaments have led to some mistaken fossil reconstructions. The sauropod Diplodocus, for example, has often been shown with its head held high, like a giraffe. Scientists now know this was the death pose, not a life pose.
Obviously, these experts have never met Bet. This is a 'top view' of her sleeping in her favorite chair.
Very much alive.
