Albertosaurus. Spinosaurus was unusually weak for its length, and the tyrannosaurid was the more poewrful and had better weaponry.

Although spino has a clear size advantage, alberto has many of the same advantages as t-rex, but with not as forward facing vision but extra speed.
I vote for Albertosaurus.

Spinosaurus was only longer and taller.

True, Spinos are somewhat lacking in girth.

Spinosaurus would win. Just because it doesnt have such big jaws doesnt mean it cant do any damage. Also a spinosaur could use its massive body to knock down albertasaur which were only like 26 feet and 2 tons

Then albertosaurus would get up and bite its neck and kill the spiny....

Theres something in an animals neck that if damaged the animal could die, forgot what its called though.

There are a host of things in the neck that, if bitten, could cause the animal to die. The corotid artery, jugular vein, and trachea are all very vulnerable, and esophogus damage could be also.

Yes, this fight is far more evenly matched than the giganotosaurus/trex v. spinosaurus matches. However, spinosaurus didn't have the agility or weapons to win. It might have worn out the tyrannosaurid, but wouldn't have won.

spinosaurus was larger and very imposing due to its sail, i doubt a single albertosaurus would dare to attack such a foe , but a starving albertosaurus would easily be capable of killing one possessing such formidable jaws.

Spinosaurus could win though because it had its sail to keep its energy.

It's sail slowly received energy. In a fight it would be of no use.

Yeah but if the fight started in the morning and when Spino woke up it could warm itself up while Albertosaurus' blood was way too cold.

Can't you understand the use of the sail?

spinosaurus would simply step on that alberto.it wouldn't stand a chance spino.

heres my depiction:

In an african jungle a lone albertosaurus is stalking an ouranosaurus.Nearby a spinosaurus is searching for fish in a river.it snares a large one skillfuly in its crocodile like jaws and swallows it whole.the alberto rushes out of the tree cover and kills the ouranosaurus.the spino heares the kill and gets up to investigate.this is his territory and he will not tolerate another predator in there.he stalkes the feeding albertosaurus and then lunges out of the trees.he grabbs the alberto in its mouth and using its 1 ton or more bite force it crushes the alberto's body.it then picks it up and throws it across the floor.

where do you get your information it seems way off and the albertosaurus sounds more like its not paying attention at all and the spinosaurus teeth can not tolerate that bite force

people albertosaurus would win heres my description

a lone albertosaurus is looking for food it sees a spinosaurus it would attack but since its starving it lunges right at the spinosaurus jumps on it and scratches it and bites it then spinosaurus dies because of loss of blood

Well, recent study shows Baryonyx had very little power in its jaws, just as much as a gharial.

And do you have any evidence that suggest Spinosaurus was indeed capable of delivering a powerfull bite? Or kill a large prey? So if you have any evidence of Spinosaurus being strong, I'd like to hear it.

As much as I like the Spino, it's to me simply a fact that is was NOT capable of killing large prey. Not Albertosaurus, and certainly NOT Tyrannosaurus rex.

just because BARYONYX had weak jaws dsoesn't mean spinosaurus did
