Last year researchers published a paper suggesting that sauropod dinosaurs would have made a contribution to climate change in the Mesozoic by producing as much as 520 million tons of methane gas. However, little research has been done into the fossil sites where accumulations of coprolites are associated with sauropods proving that sauropods produced enough methane gas to warm the earth. Are there any fossil sites around the world where sauropod remains have been found in association with multiple coprolites? If so, then we might hypothesize that the biggest flatulence by sauropod dinosaurs m
