T-Rex, without a question. Paraceratherium did not have any predators even half as large as T-Rex, so it would have no natural defenses against it.

Yes, but a single t-rex would be frightened by an animal as big as paraceratherium
Da maximum height of t-rex was 4 meters, but paracerathierum was near 6 meters tall at da shoulder! Given that t-rex was used 2 see only animals as maximum as big as t-rex (edmontosaurus), it would 2 be scared by an animal bigger than it. In t-rex of t-rex all animals were smaller or as big as t-rex (triceratops, edmontosaurus, alamosaurus, ankylosaurus...)

yes, but trex was used to fighting its own kind for territory. Not to mention, the indricotherium couldn't possibly fight back, so it would be killed in an instant.

i think paracerathirum would be able 2 pushes da t-rex with da shoulders, or kick it like giraffes against lions. I mean: its weight was 20 tons! T-Rex was only 7 tons
R u able 2 fight some1 heavys 3 times ur weight?

If there r more t-rex, it's a different thing...

I don't think a t-rex would be scared, but disinclined to attack such large prey. Much like how lions almost never attack giraffes because its safer to attack smaller prey. However, when they get hungry enough, lions do attack giraffes, and sometimes elephants.
So, if a T-rex was hungry enough, i'm sure it would attack one. Now, who would win? T-rex. If scientists current hypothesis that t-rex had a bacterial bite, like komodos, then it just needs one good bite and it can sit by and watch its prey slowly succumb to death. However, if this is not true, then i still think T-rex could run in, take a bite, and back off, and repeat until the animal bled to death or became crippled from the 3 tons of bite force.
After all, if allosaurus can take on apatosaurus, T-rex can take this sucker on.

Lions attack VERY RARELY giraffes, and ONLY when they r starvin' 2 death they attack elephants, however ALWAYS small elephants, and ALWAYS when lions r in group.
I mean a solitary T-Rex. However, why would rex have a poisonous bite? It has a strong bite, muscular body, it doesn't need a poisonus bite.
Animals which have poison o bacteria like komodo dragons, they r ALWAYS physically weaks (poisonous snake, dendrobatidae, jellyfishes, scorpions, spider, wasps, komodos)
SURELY T-Rex wasn't physically weak!
PS
Please, would u tell me who says that T-Rex had a bacteria bite? I would like 2 know da link...

Uh, I believe I already stated that these were rare scenarios initiated by hunger. Plus, a small elephant is still a pretty big animal.
Also, Komodo Dragon's are by no means a weak animal. A whack from one's tail could smash your ribcage.
Thirdly, I stated bacterial bite as a possibility, not a definite. Furthermore, here are your links:

And, of course, JFC has been hailing it, a bit too much this early I'll admit.

trex wouldn't attack repeatedly, as it was simply a one-bite attacker. All of rex's prey were defenceless, and so the predator didn't need to attack again and again. This would have rubbed off on a fully grown trex, and it would be able to kill the indricothere wih one bite to the neck. There is no reason to state that animals with poison or biochemical weapons are weak. Today's animals are extremely differnt to the past's, for example: the largest land animal today is the african elephant, whereas before it was the argentinosaurs.

I think we can assume that if T-rex's first bite doesn't work, it's going to keep biting until something happens; it's not going to sit there after one bite wondering why the prey isn't dead yet.

That's 100% right, and the reason why trex would win. After all, the mammal doesn't have any means of defence.

It has strength, but it can't really put it into effect against an animal that isn't four-legged.

An animal may have the size and strength, like Paraceratherium, but does it have wits like a carnivore,like T-rex? T-rex aren't dumb animals. Even a crocodile which brain is the size of a golf ball has the wits to take down most animals in the savannah.
