Re: Sauropod necks????
There are also lots of clams/oysters/pelecypods spread appropriately
throughout the different facies in the Hell Creek (upper most K) too
though my particular section of HC does not have them. Phil's website
list them in a nicely organized manner.
If there is a food source out there, somebody probably took advantage
of it. There has been speculation that some of the bigger mammals
also chewed up fresh water pelecypods as indicated by tooth wear.

Non-hypothetical unionid bivalves are abundant in the Morrison. Holland
wasn't "inventing" anything. Their remnants have even been found in
ichnites. Need a reference? :
