[Sauropods] appear to have had neither the musculature nor the skeletal capacity to lift or hold their necks elevated for very long... It seems likely, given how much biomass these great beasts had to consume, that their elongated necks permitted them to strip huge arcs of the landscape at low or moderate elevations without even moving their feet... There is some evidence that sauropods were gregarious...

Next, the environment needs to be fairly peaceful for long periods of time, so add'l layers of sediment can settle atop the body... Finally, erosion must strip away all of the layers of rock that have accumulated above the fossilized skeleton... Then someone must wander by who has the kind of eye that can recognize the difference between old bone and old rock, a rare skill... The statistical probability is almost nil

The body must be buried relatively quickly, before the elements and scavengers can break it down and scatter the remains. The best dinosaur remains tend to be found where a catastrophe occurred... It might be a massive flood that suddenly inundates an entire valley in mud... or the terrible sandstorms thought to have occurred in what today is Mongolia, burying dinosaurs where they crouched, turned away from the wind.

The finest particles keep moving until the fluid comes to a halt. To use an extreme example, anything carried by water or wind to a lake, which has no current at all, simple settles to the bottom, including the finest silt - which explains why most swimmers don't like putting their feet down in a slimy, fine grained lake bottom but have no reservations at all at a sandy beach.

[Stromer believed] that mammals, including humans, had originated not in Europe or the northern continents but in Africa. This was not a popular notion. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it was still widely believed that mankind had originated where it now was clearly at its most advanced stage of development, specifically Europe.
