Trex is a vlassic that everyone thinks is invincible. But new dinos discoverd are bigger faster and argueably tougher. PS trex fanboys stay away!!!!!!

This is a useless, stupid and facetious thread. "Trex fanboys stay away"? Paudie is like the only T. rex fanboy and he's never on here.

What's so bad about T. rex, anyway?
By the way, no theropod the same size or larger than T. rex was faster than it.
The holotype Giganotosaurus specimen is measured at 41 ft, with Sue maxing out at 42 ft. A second G. carolinii specimen has been found that is reportedly slightly larger than the holotype. Even with the same proportions as the holotype, it would be only around 42-43 ft long.

Spinosaurus is way to incomplete to even say it reached maximums of 50 ft.

It doesn't matter, at least you don't shove your "fanboyism" down other people's throats. Like when RJ forced us to be christians and like Spinosaurus (weird mix, isn't it?).

That is why they use their closest relatives. AND the spinosaurus fossil that was found was only a YOUNG one. And please don't tell me of a creature that is about 45 feet long and weighs 12 tons.

I didn't force you. You obviously aren't christians, so I obviously didn't force you.

I love it when people ignore that 17m is a conservative rounding down of the only way to estimate Spinosaurus' size :/

Either way, pointless thread. Tyrannosaurus is not the largest theropod, we know that, it hasnt been since 1912.
Giganotosaurus has nothing over Tyrannosaurus, the original specimen is smaller and the larger specimen is still probably smaller, although a tad longer.
No theropod around the size of Tyrannosaurus (or larger) would come close to its speed. Smaller theropods, yeah, obviously, but no 30mph Giganotosaurus', please.
'Tougher'? Lols. Only Spinsaurus can really claim this, which in itself is debatable, but only because it is 2 times the size.

I smell a Tyrannosaurus hater...

They mostly use Baryonyx and Suchomimus (probably synonymous genera), which are baryonychines, not spinosaurines. They could have slighly different or varied proportions from that of Spinosaurus.

I know of the holotype, which is 14 m and a subadult presumably. It wouldn't have grown much larger until it died, maybe two or so meters, if that (if it was even 14 m in the first place, it was destroyed in WWII, so its information may be obsolete). I don't even know how they know this individual was a subadult in the first place.

Another individual is completely grown and is around 14 m and is only 6.7 tons! How's that?

That's the only material I can list! Isn't that unusual? Well, all other material is so incomplete they cannot estimate size or age.

So it looks like 14 or 15 m is the maximum for Spinosaurus aegyptiacus.

You just can't stand having a dino better than rex, can you? And I used to be a HUGE t rex fanboy.

How can 15m be the 'maximum' for Spinosaurus when an animal that was likely around 17m is known, and is almost certainly average...?
And, again, the 14m 'adult' may not be an adult at all, Mortimer just presumed this off hand for some reason.
And yes, we can only base it on Baryonyx, who is not as close as we would like to Spinosaurus, but why do you insist on denying that Spinosaurus is as big as evidence currenbtly suggests? Yes, the MSNM V4074 skull MAY represent a 15m animal. BUT, it may also represent a 20m animal for all we know, WE DONT KNOW. We MUST presume it had simmilar proportions to Baryonyx; 17m is even a rounding DOWN for crying out loud (as is the holotypes size, it was closer to 14.4m and 8t rather than 14m and 7t. But whatever).

I guess Stromer either described the holotype as a sub adult OR described features that later authors interpreted as sub adult characteristsics.

Actually, it was a YOUNG spinosaurus, not even a sub adult, therefor putting estimates of around 60 feet MAX!

The old estimates of 60 ft maximum are way off, 52 seems more correct.
Gimme a reference concluding that the holotype specimen is a young animal. The only young Spinosaurus known is a private specimen about 25 ft long.

Why do you insist on trying to downsize Spino as much as possible?

Why?

I don't!
Why, do you think Spinosaurus aegyptiacus reached maximum lengths of 60 ft or more?

Did I ever say more? You said 15M max. That is pure bias.
