This is quite a good scale pic of multiple Theropod dinosaurs, one of my favourite scales i have come across not just because most of the sizes are accurate (some are a tinsy bit off) but also because there is a lot of different Theropods on the same image.

I may print this out and stick it on my wall ;)

The 'maximum' Spinosaurus is cleary based on a non-existant 2 meter skull. Maximum Spino should be based on Hartman's long tailed version with leg length also based on his Baryonyx.
All other large theropods visibly flattened down so as not to be taller than the 'minimum' Spino.

I could nitpick all day about how every single one is off (the worst offender is that micro Allosaurus and the 'Deltadromeus'), but I honestly can't be bothered right now.

They are all clearly scaled the the authors pre-determined views on how big each one was, rather than actual bone lengths of the animals.

Shameless self-promotion, but I did attempt something similar, with every skeletal scaled to known bone lengths.

Maybe not as much variety as the one you linked to. But the only editting I have done is to limb lengths etc. to get skeletals to match up with animals they were not intended for (the Ekirxinatosaurus is actually a Carnotaurus / Majungasaurus / Aucasaurus / Skorpiovenator chimera) and also gave the spinosaurines longer Baryonyx-like legs.

!!!!!!!!!!

This is going to sound stupid but i just typed a long reply to your comment and was about to post it when suddenly topix stopped responding and i had to quit the page, losing everything i had typed.

Long story short- im too pissed right now to type it all again so your imagination will have to do the rest ;)

This comment is merely letting you know that i was going to reply with a proper response but was cut short. Yeahhhh

Quick questions about your scale- Why is T.rex just over 11m long, Allosaurus and Tarbosaurus just over 10m long, Giganotosaurus under 12m long?

Aren't the respective lengths of these theropods 12.3m, 9.7m, 12m (or just under), and at least 12m?

Published estimates ALWAYS measure over the curvature of the spine.
If you were to stretch all the animals out then the majority would match their published estimates.

Tarbosaurus is based on the Stan Tyrannosaurus skeletal (because it is more gracile than Sue), but it is big headed so the whole animal comes out rather small.

The 9.7m estimate for Allosaurus is just plain wrong. It is an estimate for AMNH 680 to be fair(which is slightly smaller than the specimen I used; I did list the specimens), but it is clearly wrong in any case.

AMNH 680 could be slightly larger than estimated.But there is one reason.It has not been verified because of its skull design.but it makes no sence too.

PredatorX, shut up the hell on your nonsense. We are here to talk dinosaurs. And I watched many comparisons of dinosaurs on YouTube. In The small comparison nanotyrannus was the biggest. In the really big theropods spinosaurus was the biggest. In the mid-sized theropods arocanthosaurus was the biggest. In the herbivore comparision brachiosaurus was the biggest.

LTM is related to skull signatures.I'm not going too insult you because you did not understand.Got it?BTW,where did you get those opinions?

LTM, IATA code for Lethem Airport, Guyana
LTM Recordings, British record label
Long-term memory, memory that can be stored as little as a few days or as long as decades
Last Twelve Months, a financial term also known as Trailing twelve months

We know your a kid. Why did you say that? That's kiddie talk. You must be 6 or 7 or 8. Also a T-Rex fanboy with many fanboyism and with Dino confuses is a stupid copycatter. I did not get'em from a kids book you young. I've got them from YouTube. Who agrees?

Even if your not, your still a kid that do many bad troll things to the Internet. Kids should not be on the Internet talking, some know your address. It's really dangerous, once a high schooler named coprolite1 went on the Internet and scared VERY BADLY people off this forum.
