Wow. This must have been a large specimen among the Euhelopdidae - no wonder its neck is very long and large in proportion to its body. Beautiful skeletal diagram (like so much of your beautiful and greatly accurate Paleoart. :clap:

Some of the Sauropods discovered in china having long neck and short body..Can this Sauropod hold it's neck in vertical position as shown in this image ?

Probably yes, recent studies (Taylor et al., 2009, Dzemski, G. and Christian, A. 2007) suggests quite flexible necks in sauropods. It is suggested that it is most parsimonious to assume that the necks of sauropods were supported by the same mechanisms as in their extant outgroups, and in similar postures.

The High shoulders in Daxiatitan could indicate quite vertical neck. Probably had short tail but very broad and massive body, so its neck would be comparatively very light as the pneumatic bones of the neck reduce the specific gravity of it.
