Don't know where you got that from, Paraceratherium was 16ft tall at the shoulder and 26 feet in length. Did you mix height and length up?

That doesn't make sense, T.rex is almost horizontal in it's posture so how could its head be 3m above it's hips?

Because he thinks dinosaurs are lizards from the 50s which drag their tails and stand upright like kangaroos

Dinosaurs stand upright, which makes T-rex 6 meters tall.

Just to point out, a Tyrannosaurus standing in that comically innacurate tripod pose would be far taller than 6m. The head+body alone is 6m, plus 3m of legs, the total height would be nigh on 9m.

Trolling failed.

dude if the total height was 9 m it would stand half on its tail.

T.rex was only like 13 ft tall at the hips, it would have a posture like Godzilla if it was 20 ft tall

Dumbass, standing upright doesn't mean that.
T-rex's head + body is 3-4 meters tall and it's legs are only 2,5 meters.
So rex could be 5,5-6,5 meters tall.
I saw a T-rex skeleton and the legs are not 3 meters, my dad is 1,8 meters tall and he's 3/4 of the Tyrannosaurus's legs, so the leg is like 2,4-2,5 meters tall.
Super trolling fail, dumbass.

Ok, rex is just 13 feet tall at the HIPS, but at full height it's 20 feet tall.

Except the _legs_ are just under 3m in a natural position (read: not in an idiotic upright stance. The pelvis makes for a total hi height of 3.4m in a natural pose), and over 3m when stretched out;
131cm of femur, 111cm of tibia, 5cm of tarsal, 62cm of metatarsus, 55cm of the foot.
That is a total of 3.64m. The pelvis on top adds another 50cm, and there is cartilage between the joints perhaps up to a total of 10cm of it.

Head-base of the tail is 6m in the biggest Tyrannosaurus specimens.

Even rotating the body a 'mere' 45 degrees upwards gives a head height of 6.6m.

Stop failing.

Wrong, science proves nothing, T-rex's legs are only 2,5 meters tall, which makes the body 6 meters tall, really I'm sick of you, get the heck out of here.
T-rex would stand upright if hunting high prey and stand normally when chasing equal sized prey.

Epic fail.

Ok Oasegenggam look at this:

http://0.tqn.com/d/dinosaurs/1/0/a/B/-/-/tyra...

Now tell me, Oasegenggam, how could T.rex be 13ft tall at the hips but 20ft tall max? This IS roughly the correct posture of T.rex. If it's hips are 13ft tall, as you can see it's head would only be another foot or so.

Where are you seeing the 20ft height in this pic????

Unless you can tell me otherwise, the conclusion is that 20ft tall= impossible.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
