spinosaurus is a member of the spinosauridae family and is the largest land predator yet discovered at 40-56 feet long and 4-9 tons.

Acrocanthosaurus is a member of the carcharodontosauridae family or possibly the allosauridae family (under dispute).it is one of the largest theropods at up to 40 feet long and 2-6 tons.

which of these titans would win in a fight to the death?

this place is so lonly lol.

My depiction:

An Acrocanthosaurus has killed a Parasaurolophus.Nearby a Spinosaurus has smelt the carcass and investigates.The spino approaches and the acro roars and charges.the spino side steps and the forwad momentam carries the acro forward.when it recovers the spinosaurus is eating the carcass.the acro rams the spino with its head breaking 3 ribs.the spino counter attacks by turning as quickly as its sail will allow and bites the acro on the neck.however it can't deploy a lethal bite as the acro struggels free.

The acro bites the spinos sail and tears it.infuriated,the spino pushes the acro over and pins it down with its arms.It bites the acro with all the power in its jaws on the neck,slicing through flesh and arteries.despite this the seriously wounded acro shakes the spino of and bite down on its neck,slicing through arteries and nearly riping the head of.However the acro soon dies of blood loss too.

MY OUTCOME:A DRAW.

p.s sorry squeamish people XD

I keep noticing how you keep saying Spino could in fact use it's arms as a weapon. Give me one good reason why Spinosaurus would be alble to use its arms while other Spinosaurids could not. A GOOD one.

Anyway, I think it's 60 for Acro 40 for Spino.

i took that into account so in my depiction the only way spino could use its arms is if an animal was under it as was the acro when it was pushed to the floor.I wasn't saying it could use it arms when the opponent was standing.

But theropods could nut put their hands in a way that the palms would face the ground. So when it pushed then it would break its wrists.

But you said PIN with the arms. Even in an animal is underneath it, it cannot do that. Theropods arms are made for holding prey while biting. Not pinning them down.

well you said it youself,spinos arms were positioned under the body so if the acro was on the floor the spinos arms were in a good position to hold it down.

Nope. I indeed said they were positioned under the body. Does it matter? NO! Cause Spino's hands faced upwards. How can it hold something on the floot with upwards facing palms. Unless Spino would find a way to put its claws under Acro's body. But then it had to lift it, and 5 tons is a big weight to lift. So, now way ANY therapod could do that. Only prey in front of them.

This is a reconstruction of a spinosaurus skeleton based on the bones that have been found over the last 100 years aprox.U can clearly see that spinos arms were not only facing down but so to were the hands that were(in my opinion)in a perfect position for pinning an animal under its body.

Okay. But Spino could still not pin something down. It's claws were facing inwards. Like to eacht other. It would have to pronate his hands in a very unusual position to pin something down.
It would have to put his hands in a position where his claws would face outwards. I don't think that would be possible.

Acrocanthosaurus, if anyone wishes a friendly debate i would be more than happy to show evidence that would lead to Acro's victory.

I know Acro will will. But I'd like to see the evidence as well.

Ok,
1)According to a recent study(February 2009) six tonnes is a reasonable figure for Acrocanthosaurus atokensis, that's about as large as the MOR555 specimen of T.Rex(a moderate sized specimen), this is enough to turn the tables in favor of the Allosauroid.

2)Even known forelimbs would play a minimal role in this conflict, i would have to say that Acro's forelimbs also heavily muscled and have a greater manual range of motion than most other theropods:
http://journals.cambridge.org/action/displayA...
3)Unlike Spino's tall skin sail, which was a cumbersome and useless in a fight, Acro's moderate sized sail had attachments for powerful muscles like those of modern bison, so this theropod was relatively more mobile than Spino in a fight, i can assume:
