Re: PALEONEWS:Huge dinosaur's neck bones unearthed in Texas

This line is also from the article.
"It is extremely rare. Only a partial cervical vertebrae of an adult
                  has been found before in the late Cretaceous." 

Is this true? I know Gilmore collected a partially articulated specimen
from the North Horn Formation in central Utah.  I can't recall whether
or not he collected cervicals.
