Bipedal fighting sauropods

Regarding comments on arm wrestling dinos.

Actually, a number of sauropods - camarasaurs, the Chinese forms - have hips
that are rotated somewhat backwards. This means that the hindlegs would still
work when the body was reared up (unlike diplodocids, which probably stood
tripodally on their massive tails). These sauropods may have been able to
walk on two legs, both to feed, and fight.
