The book provides in the beginning an overview of all main types of sauropods with brief physical descriptions.

Then we go closer into the anatomy; the bones, the muscles, the entrails etc. Here we learn how the bones actually were hollow, like those of modern birds; this gave the sauropods significant savings in weight/5(32).
