      Impossible.  No theropod ever had sauropod genes.  The closest they 
might have  would be the common ancestor of sauropods and theropods, but 
these would not be sauropod genes.  A theropod expressing sauropod genes 
would be about as likely as yuor children expressing the genes of your 
cousins children that came from his spouse.
