But my query was specifically referring to Cretaceous snakes, and whether any of them had boa constrictor-like behavior, including targeting much larger dinosaurs (not just hatchlings)

Fair question. There are several skeletomuscular correlates of large- prey constricting behavior in living boiids, at least, so if the myology can be put together with any confidence for the new specimens then the problem should be somewhat approachable. It might, however require more prep from the slab, or else some serious imaging.
