Thanks to his long neck, Diplodocus can reach even the highest leaves. He’s chewing away peacefully – after all, nobody disturbs him up there! It’s too bad, though, that a few naughty little dinosaurs with sharp teeth are not impressed by his size and challenge him over his lunch. A trick is needed so that the tall Diplodocus can resume his peaceful chomping.
