Re: late thoughts: misunderstand the neck?
I think if the strike missed there was ample time for predator get-away,
and if it didn't miss, dead sauropod. If I am wrong about neck strength,
and the neck became a problem, just let go! As to sauropods stomping
theropods... well, I just don't think the theropods were THAT slow.
As to your last question: "How many pre-mortem bite marks have even been
found on a large adult sauropod fossil?"
my first thought: "how many times have sauropods been found minus one or
more neckbones (or skulls) ?"
whether or not the sauropod survived the encounter with such a predator, the
damage might've made those particular parts less likely to survive
fossilization than the rest of the skeleton.
