Erketu facts

This sauropod is known for its long neck which was twice long as its body. Its heavy body counter balanced the weight of its neck . Erketu had two sets of spines on top of its neck , instead of the usual single set . Muscles ran between its vertebrae to hold up its neck-this same system is used in suspension bridges today
