Unless you want my death from drowning in my own saliva on your
conscience, you really shouldn't raise such prospects.

Sauropod remains are known from the Yixian Formation - but AFAIK they have not yet been described:

Wang, X.-L. et al. (1988). Stratigraphic sequence and vertebrate-bearing beds of the lower part of the Yixian Formation in Sihetun and neighbouring area, western Liaoning, China. Vertebrata PalAsiatica 36: 81-101.

I haven't seen this publication, so I don't know if it the sauropod comes with fossilized integument. I very much doubt it. :-( I believe some sauropod material was found near Liaoxi, but that's all I know.
