An apatosaur starts trampling a farmer's fields. The farmer, getting hysterical, gets a REALLY big axe and chops off the apatosaur's tail. The farmer's fields are now covered totally in the dinosaur's blood (surprisingly, the apatosaur isn't dead yet), but unknowingly, he saves all his surrounding fields from getting ruined. Why is this if the dinosaur isn't yet dead?


Apatosaurs and other long-necked dinosaurs evolved to have long necks to reach leaves of the tall plants that grew in the Jurassic and Triassic periods. To counter-balance their long necks, they needed long tails as well, otherwise, they would have simply tipped over on their faces. This is precisely what happened when the farmer cut off the apatosaur's tail.
