Is there any evidence of any sauropods apart from titanosaurs surviving into
the last few million years of the Cretaceous? Apart from the poorly known
_Campylodoniscus_ (which might be a titanosaur), all Campanian-Maastrichtian
sauropods appear to belong to the Titanosauria, including the
nemegtosaurids, _Antarctosaurus_ (chimera?) and _Opisthocoelicaudia_.
