"Tim can't be wrong, can he?"
That's nice, but I'm only human...
I'm wrong fairly often in certain subjects.

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 5, 2001


"I hope your joking."
Did you actually think I wasn't?! Nevermind...

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 5, 2001


SPINOSAURUS COULD SWIM AND RUN. T REX HOWEVER COULD NOT RUN. ON RAPTORS FOR INSTENCE ONE BONE WAS SMALLER THAN THE OTHER. T REX THOUGH THE SMALLER BONE (AND WE ALL KNOW RAPTORS CAN RUN ) ON THE RAPTOR WAS BIGGER THAN THE OTHER ON T REX. SO T REX THERE FOR WAS A SCAVENGER. AND SPINOSAURUS COULD MOVE IT'S ARMS.IT HAD TO MOVE ITS ARMS TO CATCH FISH. SPINOSAURUS AND T REX WOULD NEVER FIGHT. T REX WAS FOUND IN MONTANA AND THE OTHER ONES. YOU KNOW WESTERN STATES AND SPINOSAURUS WAS FOUND IN EGYPT. SCEINTESTS DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE LARGEST CARNIVORE IS . T REX SPINOSAURUS CARCHARDONTOSAURUS AND GIGANOTOSAURUS ARE THE LARGEST. SPINOSAURUS HAD THE SMALLEST HEAD AND T REX HAD THE LARGEST BRAIN CAVITY.

With all of these fictional dinosaurs being described, how will we know when a real discovery is reported? :)
from Brad, age 14, Woodville, ON, Canada; November 5, 2001


I like ALL of the made-up dinos. I'm the one who started it..eech

HEY! Why did it take 10 min. to post my compliment but it took several hours to post my story?
from Mike, age 11, ?, ?, USA; November 5, 2001
Don't complain about when your things are posted - or yours will never be posted again. I have enough work to do without having to answer annoying questions. If you don't like it here, find another site. (By the way, If I were you, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for your next post to be put online). JC


I have a scanner but I don't no how to get it on the page, I have never put in pictures before, you should ask brad, tom g, or honkie tong, they would know how to get it on.

from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 5, 2001"

Pterodactylus had teeth!
from Brad, age 14, Woodville, ON, Canada; November 5, 2001


I've made a some dinosaur:
Gigantochyus-"Giant Claw"
This 40(in maximum) ft long theropod had a 3m long claw on each hand.These claws were used for killing its' victims and knocking down trees that got in its' way.It lived during the late cretatious period in New York,New Mexico and South Dakota.It hunted hadrosaurs,sauropods,raptors, and occationally Juvinille T-Rexs!
Thats it,do u like it?

from Gloman, age 13, ?, ?, ?; November 5, 2001


Gigantosaurus was about 45 ft long.
from Gloman, age 13, ?, ?, ?; November 5, 2001


Ok
from Gloman, age 13, ?, ?, ?; November 5, 2001


Afton - where you joking about the compsognathus?

Also, Apart from the Lepidotes fish found in Baryonyx' ribcage, I read that partly dissolved bones of a young iguanodon have been found in the baryonyx, which is actually thought to be not fully grown. What do you guys think?

Concerning "raptors," I think they where designed to kill ANY prey that can't inflict seriuos damage in defense, because they have devastating (not as devastating as T rex' teeth, but still...) weaponry, but they can't take much damage themselves.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 5, 2001


Someone asked Gigantosaurus' size. It reached 45ft (13.7m) in length, and was like 3.7m tall at the hip. My shoulder height estimate is 5m.

New dino!

Echinosaurus = Prickly lizard!
It had a long snout, tiny mouth, hundreds of the tiniest teeth and short back legs and long front ones with long claws. It ate ants. It was up to 3m long, 90cm tall, and was slow. It had a short tail. It was covered with 20cm poisonous spines for protection. It ripped open ant hills and termite mounds and ate the occupants. It carried it's babies on it's back (the babies don't get hurt because the mother keeps her spines flat in that area. She has many strong back muscles to control the spines in different areas.) The babies are born live, and they only have one at a time.
How d'you like it?
It's a bit like a modern anteater!

from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 5, 2001


Sorry about the sneak review. I had no time to check it, I had to make two fourth years go away and stop looking, and then lunch eneded, and those horrid computer prefects made me go away. Afton can be a presenter he wants. If a compy tried to trip a rex up, though, it would end up very flat. I could use a compy for some humour, though...

Hey guys, the next Net Impact is out! To reason for the delay is mainly due to the Setember 11 attacks. But enjoy it anyway.

I have a question. I was wondering if any of you had any idea of where to find a picture of the model that was made after Troodon in the form of a bipedal humanoid. I'd really appreciate it.
from Talisa B., age 22, Grove City, OH, USA; November 5, 2001


Da masta Compsagnathus would be a good dinosaur for your dino WCW wrestling because he weighs 7-9 pounds and he'll be able to run fast against enemies and trip them up for it's attacks. And no one would be able to catch him. And da masta i'll be the person who annonces all the dinosaurs when they come out tell if i cant or can see ya.

Another dinosaur I made up:

Nasinothus
Lived: Cretaceous before T.Rex
Size: Top size: As tall as T.Rex's stomach
Deadly: Yes. Sharp curved teeth. It's hard to believe this dinosaur is a descendant of Compsognathus.
Speed: Ostrich like, VERy fast
Prey: Mostly everything(except plants of course)
Color: Usually shocking red with black stripes. White nails.
Personality: Fierce if bothered. Males are fiercer than females(on account of testosterone).

Other info:
Nasinothus has longer arms than t.Rex. It has strong legs that allows it to run fast. Mates for life. Nasinothus kicks, bites, scratches. Scariest predator in the mid Cretaceous.

from Gianna, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 4, 2001


"you know that surviving duck-bill of the k-t mass ecstinction,"

I've heard of it, but I don't know much about it. I'm not convinced that it is the age that people say it is.

"those 200 million year old prosauropods,"

Anchisaurus? Ammosaurus? Lufengosaurus?

"the early triasic dinosaur/thecodont,"

Euparkeria?

"those unnamed dinosaurs from antarctica,"

I can't say that I remember them. What kinds of dinosaurs are they?

"and that unknown genus of an ankylosaur?could you give them a name please?"

If its an unknown genus, I can't give it a name.
from Brad, age 14, Woodville, ON, Canada; November 4, 2001


Afton, those are real dinosaurs!
from Brad, age 14, Woodville, ON, Canada; November 4, 2001


I cant get to the Allosaurus game anymore because I forgot how to. can anybody refresh my memory???

"'Acrocanthosaurus could be classified as an Allosaurid or what?'
Spinosaurid."

I hope you're joking...

When are you people going to make more pictures, I really enjoy looking at them, everytime I come on this site I check to see if any pictures are in, they're very cool.
from T-master, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 4, 2001


I think it's cool da masta
from Gianna, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 4, 2001


"What is the more Chinese version of Allosaurus?"
Yangchuanosaurus, or szechanosaurus.

"Acrocanthosaurus could be classified as an Allosaurid or what?"
Spinosaurid.

"What dinosaur is a pain in the neck?"
Huh? I don't really understand that question. Is that supposed to be a pun or something?

"What is my second favorite dinosaur?"
If I remeber correctly, It's Cryolophosaurus.

"How many Dino adventures movies did I say I was going to make?"
I don't like that question. It really is too hard to answer. I think you should make another quiz, but could you not ask more questions like the fifth one? Thanks.

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 4, 2001


That's it! I'm beginning to feel left out! Everyone is making up their
own dinosaurs! (Honkie Tong, Gianna, Brad, Da masta, Tom G, Mike...)
Now it's my turn:
Thespesiodon Canadensis
Name means "Canadian Awful tooth"
Saurichia-Theropoda-Allosauridae
10 meters(about 33 ft. long)
Lived during the late Jurassic.
Based originally on a single, 6 inch, serrated tooth, then later, a single 95% complete skeleton was found. This dinosaur was very similar to Allosaurus, but it had more prominent hornlets over it's eyes, which resembled those of Carnotaurus sastrei.

Neotitan copei
name means: "Cope's(named in honor of)new titan(Giant greek gods)"
Saurischia-Sauropoda-Brachiosauridae
About 55 meters (180 ft.) long, 25-35 ft. tall at the hip, head was 70 ft. above the ground.
Lived during early Creataceous in Texas and New Mexico.
The largest dinosaur ever, Neotitan, is based on 7 neck vertebrae, of which the largest were 5 ft. long(a foot longer than those of Sauroposeidon), most of the Spine, a partial skull, and a few leg bones. The exact size is unknown.

Do you like them?
from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 4, 2001


Heres my made up dinosaurs

Sarcolestes (Flesh Robber) birdhipped dinosaur
Sauropelta unresonable
sauropodomorphs in saropod group
tylosaurus unknown dinosaur either reptile or amphibian
Zatomus fast runner Carnosauria (classifactions) Theropoda Saurichia
Labocania unknown classifications of earlier state thought to be a carnosaur
Kronosaurus Crown lizard amphibian and reptil

DO NOT COPY THESE DINOSAURS!!!!!!!!!!!!
from Afton, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 4, 2001


"Tim, how do paleontologists KNOW the neutral spines supported a sail."
As far as I know, Paleontologists aren't absolutely SURE that it did support a sail, but that is most likely the case. What else would the spines be used for? I don't know much about this subject.

from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 4, 2001


Well, since everyone made up dinos, I guess I will too.

Titonichosaurus (Giant clawed lizard) It was a 30-40 foot long theropod with a claw on each foot and finger.

Lived: 78 million BC in British Colombia, Canada

New dino - Since Tom G and Gianna have done this too. Tom G and Gianna - what'dja think?

Magnornithos - BIG BIRD

A slender theropod with THE longest legs, highly disproportionate to body size (9m long, 1/2 tail, 2.8m tall). Has a coloutfull feather crest on top of it's head, and very long, strong arms with 52 inch claws. Jaws stronger than spino's but weaker than daspletosaur's.

What'dyu think?

This will feature in the later WWD (worldwide wrestling dinos.)
WWD will be parallel to WCW dinosaurs.

A new championship: the U.S. title.

from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 4, 2001


Afton - I think that spinosaurs normally hunted fish, but would have scavenged, too. Almost all predators scavenge. It's good, you get a free meal. Also, I would have thought that spino would have ambushed smaller dinos, if not fot that big sail. Tim - why do paleontologists think that the neural spines supported a skin sail?
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 4, 2001


Afton - I think they where mainly fish eaters, but scavenged when they could. If not for that big sail I'd say they would have ambushed smaller dinos, too. Tim, how do paleontologists KNOW that the neural spines actually supported a skin sail?
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 4, 2001


George M - You need to talk to Tim M.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 4, 2001


Deinosuchus would lag far behing T-Rex, but not because of the fact that its jaws were built like the Amazonian fish eaters. It's simply because T-Rex had a better jaw design than all Crocs. As you said, John, the super crocs were more like a cross beetween the Gavials and Caimans, and the larger, more powerful crocs. So, it's really irrelevant how Deinosuchus' jaws were designed amongst Crocodiles, because the fact is, T-Rex would be ahead by far anyway.
from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 4, 2001


But there are only 4 levels???Hatchling,juvinille,sub-adult, and adult...in fact I think I'll go play that game right now.
from Gloman, age 13, ?, ?, ?; November 4, 2001


When you hear about paleontologists saying that a human beign could outrun Tyrannosaurus, beware of what they are stating. Because the maximum speed range calculated for Tyrannosaurus ranges from 45-55 kph, the human olympic sprinter can do about 43-45kph. So it is possible that a human could outrun a Tyrannosaurus, or even a slightly slow lion for that matter, which can sprint at up to 45-50kph.

However, this applies to only olympic sprinters, who run very very much faster then your typical human adult. These people have literally trained and built their body to max out in a 100 meter race. The typical human (that's you and me, unless you are an olympic sprinter) runs at most up to 26kph, so try harder if you want to beat the world record. So the next time a paleontologist says that a human being could outrun Spinosaurus or Tyrannosaurus, take it with a pinch of salt. He's probably refering to the 0.001 percent of the world's population that do olympic sprinting.

However, we have good reason to believe that the human sprinter would still be eaten in the end, for Tyrannosaurus would have been able to go at speed for distance, much like a wolf, given recent studies into Tyrannosaurus leg design and lung capacity suggesting it was built for a long chase. A human sprinter would prehaps gain a slight headstart for the first 100 meters (or more likely, none at all), and then Tyrannosaurus would quickly close the tinsy distance between him and our poor guy as he starts to tire out.
from Gol, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 4, 2001


Jurrasic Park really...., stuffed the dinos up! Dilophosaurus, Velociraptor, mabe even T Rex and Spino(speed n' stuff). If ths topic has already passed, I'm just new to this site and have benn learing about dinos, and haven't come to the board.
from Alex S, age ?, ?, ?, Australia; November 3, 2001


I'm an undergraduate biology student and I'm very interestested in data about chevron shape in diplodocid dinosaurs and their possible use in tripodality. I know sauropod tails have been compared with those of kangaroos in their use and shape. is there a way to find the information I need in the net or somewhere else? if you Know please let me Know it.
from Jorge M, age 18, Bogota, Cundinamarca, Colombia; November 3, 2001


"I don't know that Deinosuchus' jaws were built like modern day Caimans and Gavials, which are the long jawed fish-eating crocs. To me Deinosuchus resembles more the Nile Crocodile and the American Alligator, which have shorter, more powerful jaws, designed to kill larger terrestrial animals. For example, the Nile Crocodile can and will kill anything that comes close enough.(With the exception of the Hippo, which is very strong and agressive, and most other Pachyderms)
Either way, T-Rex has Deinosuchus beat by a good margin when it comes to jaw power."

Actually the jaws of extinct super crocs like Deinosuchus and Sarcosuchus imperator (which is larger then Deinosuchus by a good margin) resemble a cross between that of the very dangerous modern large prey hunters like Crocodylus porosus and that of mainly fish and small prey hunters like Gavialis gangeticus or Crocodylus johnstoni. The reason could be double, fish back then were much larger that what we're commonly used to, so it's not unreasonable to assume that they would have adaptations for hunting large 3-meter fish. They would have been fully capable of hunting the ocassional dinosaur that came along though.
from John, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 3, 2001


Actually Spinosaurus could not out run a human because some paleoscientists believe that spinosaurus was a scavenger becase i could on ly live on oranisms that were dead or were slow at running.

"Maybe jaw power isn't everything. Deinosuchus had such massive teeth and jaws that it could kill an alligator even if the alligator has stronger jaws. ALSO, I think the alligator has stronger jaws in PROPORTION to body size, and deinosuchus is much larger!"

Duhz...Deinosuchus was like FIVE times the size of your modern gator? What are you trying to prove? That you're dumband it wasn't obvious to anyone before? I'be very surprised if the gator could beat it... Duhzzz...you see why Tyrannosaurus was so good was not simply because of his jaw power, but it was also because of his teeth and very large mouth. His large, bone crushing teeth and large berth of mouth, along with his powerful bite, allowed him to rend bone and muscle and remove a great deal of material (up to 150 kilograms) in a single bite. What we're concerned about is really how much damage Tyrannosaurus could do in a single bite, which is certainly much more then any other dinosaur that ever lived...by a large margin! Tyrannosaurus didn't rely soley on jaw power, he had the best dental weapons ever degigned also and that gave his the deadilest land-based predatory weapon of all the dinosaurs ever, simple as that.

Actually mike spinosaurus was about 45 feet long. I think thats why they made it longer than it should go, one spino was even found about 48 feet long. anyway the battle would have gone on longer if they ever fought, but the movie had to get on they didn't want to show them fighting forever and waisting movie time (even though it would of been cool). I think they just had spino win to show that it was a deadly dinosaur and to put more intensity in the movie, now that the audience thinks that spino is tougher than rex.

In JP3 Spinosaurus was 50 ft. long. He's actually about 40 ft. long. Plus, Spinosaurus killed T-Rex in less than a minute. It really would have been a fierce battle.

Speaking of made up dinosaurs, there have been a few in DinoWarz, and a few more to come in the upcoming season three...I'm not entitled to show you how they look like, but here's an incomplete list.

>From Season 1:

Spinosaurus Genetus Maximus
Length: 68 feet
Mass: 10.8 tons

Comments: A genetically argumented Spinosaurus that engaged Sue in a near disasterous battle in the last eposide of the first season (yes, a time when Dino Warz was still simple and didn't have a storyline save for the fights!) Coming in at almost a massive 70 feet long, Spinosaurus Maximus was finally defeated when steroid related limb injuries crippled him, giving Sue the advantage she needed to defeat him in a skull crushing pounce.

>From Season 2:

Ultraraptor Eolunensis
Length: 29 feet
Mass: 2.9 tons

Comments: A gigantic raptor created from modified Utahraptor and Velociraptor stock DNA, the Ultraraptor was specifically designed negate the size advantage that Tyrannosaurus had. A group of 3 Ultraraptors took on Sue in DinoWarz 6, at some times almost winning the upper hand. Ultimately, the light built and inability to take damage of the raptor design was carried on in the Ultraraptor and two of them were dispached by Sue after a few ambushes. The final Ultraraptor was taken out by an M-72 LAW from Tinker, making the man-made species extinct- for now.

Suchomimus Tenerensis Prime
Length: 45 feet
Mass: 16.5 tons

Comments: A 1 to 1 scale of a full grown adult Suchomimus, Suchomimus Tenerensis Prime is actually a heavily-armed man-made robotic dinosaur that attacked the Tyrannosaur team in DinoWarz 8. After sustaining serious damage from the siblings, Suchomimus tried to self destruct but was shorted out when a stray rocket from John Rambo activated the water sprinklers in the arena, dispensing water on the robot who had it's water intergity compromised from the extensive damage it had taken.

Season 3 will introduce even more genetically altered or created new species of dinosaurus. Watch out for them.

I don't know that Deinosuchus' jaws were built like modern day Caimans and Gavials, which are the long jawed fish-eating crocs. To me Deinosuchus resembles more the Nile Crocodile and the American Alligator, which have shorter, more powerful jaws, designed to kill larger terrestrial animals. For example, the Nile Crocodile can and will kill anything that comes close enough.(With the exception of the Hippo, which is very strong and agressive, and most other Pachyderms)
Either way, T-Rex has Deinosuchus beat by a good margin when it comes to jaw power.

Here's my try at making up some dinosaurs!

"_Ornithoscelidus huxleyi_"
"Huxley's bird leg"
Theropoda: Coelurosauria: Compsognathidae
A beautifully preserved feathered theropod from Solnhofen, with very long birdlike legs.

"_Thagomizer simmonsi_"
"After the late Thag Simmons"
Thyreophora: Stegosauria: Stegosauridae
A descendant of Stegosaurus, this American stegosaur has extraordinary tail spikes up to three metres long!

"_Brontosauroides brevicephalus_"
"Short-headed brontosaur form"
Sauropoda: Macronaria: Camarasauridae
An unusual Jurassic sauropod with a shortened head resembling a pug dog, or some outdated restorations of "Brontosaurus".

"has anyone heard about the lattest updates of the new found rexes? i wonder how enormouse would their skull be like and what happened if they exceed the skull length of giganotosaurus? thank you!"

If you are referring to Rigby's rex and "C-Rex," then I think I can help you. Rigby's rex might actually be two animals, as some bones are large and some aren't. At first, they believed it two perhaps be a new oddly proportioned tyrannosaur, but it is more likely to be two rexes, one gigantic, one average. The giant is incomplete, and I believe is scheduled to be on display 2005? Not quite sure, as I can no longer find the article on it online. As for "C-Rex," which I know less detail about, Horner is in charge of the excavation and thus far only a few of the bones have been unearthed. I think it is likewise incomplete. Rigby's rex was 15% larger than Giganatosaurus at lower end projections, and C-Rex is 10% larger than Sue, which would make it approx. 5-7% larger than Giganatosaurus.

"Anyway, Alligators haven't got the second strongest jaws in the animal kingdom. If you insist it's a croc, then maybe the 14m long deinosuchus."

Crocs do bite hard, but nowhere near as hard as the Alligators, who had specialized equipment in their jaws to bite hard (stouter snout, deeper teeth) Deinosuchus would have bitten pretty hard, but oddly, the jaw designs of all the super crocs back then resemble those of the very long jawed fish hunters we have today rather then those crocs we know who take on large prey, so I'd expect it to lag quite far behind Tyrannosaurus. Tyrannosaurus was far ahead in terms of biting power. Da Masta, you seem to dunno anything about Alligators (of the science of bite force for that matter), so please refrain from shooting your mouth for it's very annoying when you post wrong info and we have to correct that. We'd prefer to debate with somebody who actually knows what he's talking about?

I think I know why you remember Chilantaisaurus as a Therizinosaur,Brad.The species of Chilantaisaurus I was reffering to was Chilantaisaurus Tashuikouensis, but Chilantaisaurus zheziangenis is based on a hand claw found in China. And this species has similarities to Therizinosaurus. I think that's what you meant.
from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 2, 2001

"Ten - Shun - The peple who made the magazine forgot that certain creatures ever existed."

What is the point to this statement? That the magazine should have listed every single animal, living or not? They most likely did not "forget" certain animals, rather included a rough generalization of animals to show various scales of bite force. If a crocodile did have greater bite strength than an alligator, I'm sure they would've featured a crocodile rather than the alligator.

I'm not sure why the end of the Jurassic was changed. There were no major extinctions at the end of the Jurassic, so maybe paleontologists had a hard time deciding when to end the Jurassic.

Judging from the end of other periods, the end of the Jurassic was due to some change. A possible theory might be "at the end of the Jurassic, there was the loss of many Stegosaurian and Sauropod forms. The Sauropods later recovered in different forms etc."
from Tim M., age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 2, 2001


Yes, I do believe that Sinornithosaurus is smaller than V. Mongoliensis. But only slightly. I think the latest Sinornithosaurus length estimates are at about 1 m. While V. mongoliensis' estimated length is about 1.8 m long. Maybe S. milleni could grow bigger, I'm not sure. But so far I think V. mongoliensis is longer by a couple of ft.

"Anyway, Alligators haven't got the second strongest jaws in the animal kingdom. If you insist it's a croc, then maybe the 14m long deinosuchus."

I disagree. Refer to the September 1999 issue of Scientific American magazine, and you'll see a graph at the top of page 49, in which it shows various animal biting strengths. The Alligator is right behind T.rex's, making it the second most powerful bite in the animal kingdom.

Note: the Tyrannosaur's bite strength was measured from FEEDING bites, which are a deal less than full strength. CONSERVATIVE figures place feeding strength at 13,000 newtons (about 3,000 lbs), imagine what full strength would be!

Here are some dinosaurs I made up. There not exiciting or anything but I just wanted to make up some that lived in New Zealand because toe bones of a theropod kinda like this have been found.

Brevisloricatusaurus (Catusaurus for short)
Meaning:"Small armoured lizard"
When it lived: Early Cretaceous
Where it lived: New Zealand (its realitive Minmi lived in Australia)
Size: About 2.5 to 3m long

Bravisloricatusaurus was a small anklyosaur that didn't have a club. It had scutes covering its back and a few spikes. It was preyed on by Occultusaurus and a larger Allosaur (the allosaur was a relative of the allosaur in Austrailia but smaller. Brevisloricatusaurus was quite succsesful.

Occultusaurus
Meaning: Hidden lizard
When it lived: Early Cretaceous
Where it lived: New Zealand
Size: About 4m long

Occultusaurus was a succsesful theropod well evolved to live in the dense forest of New Zealand. It was very agile. It is an Allosaur. Its prey were Brevisloricatusaurus, Hypsilophdontids and sometimes Tuatara (I call them Tuatara because the ones that lived in dinosaur times were about the same as modern Tuatara). it was more succsesful than the bigger allosaur that lived in New Zealand because it was more well adapted to living in dense forest.

"I THINK they are both about 1.8m long."

"T rex vs Carcharodontosaurus. Very close one. Sometimes T rex would win, sometimes Carcha."

I wonder who said this...why do they always put "It'll be a close one" just to sound civil. Come on, wake up and see, T.Rex simply outclasses Cardy by a great margin. The only time Cardy wins is when he's lucky, either then that, it's rex the whole way. It's really like saying rat vs. cat, it'll be a close one, the cat would win sometime, the rat would win the others. Go wake up and see the friggin technology and weapons gap between T.Rex and cardy, T.Rex would win 4 out of 5 times, or even more! How can somebody even say this will be a close one when T.Rex had such a friggin advantage in the fight? Face it, T.Rex simply too good.

"But not by as much two times. "

You're right, Tyrannosaurus was about fifteen times stronger.

"The number two powerfull jaw predator is only a little behind in my opinion."

Harh, you are wrong, you have opinion, I have facts. The number two strongest jawed animal that does hunt prey that lives on land behind Tyrannosaurus is the american alligator today. And it lead any competition by a good lead at 3,000 newtons of bite force in an attack bite. However, Tyrannosaurus rex reached MORE then this force with minimal effort while it was feeding normally. In an attack bite, Tyrannosaurus could easily, given his immense jaw muscles bite up to five to six times harder, that's about 15,000-18,000 newtons of bite force. No other predator even comes anywhere close. Notice the word "undisputed" in the title "undisputed champion of bite force" paleontologists assign to it. Allosaurids on the other hand, had their bite force calculated at a pathetic maximum of 1,000 newtons, 15 times less then Tyrannosaurus' maximum. It's time to accept the facts Da Masta, the Tyrannosaurids were VERY much stronger jawed then any other dino or land predator for that matter that ever lived.

"But stop trying to make it sound that it is obvious that he is coelurosaurian."

Duhz....it was pretty OBVIOUS he was coelurosaurian. When Tyrannosaurus fossils started to be better understood, they ALREADY knew there was something very different between Tyrannosaurus and your generic carnosaur, they just didn't bother to find out what until recently. It was already obvious.

"Allosaurus was a successfull design. They flourished almost all of the Jurassic."

Not really, they didn't really come out until the late jurassic, and then again, they were being swamped by other dinosaurian predators too. And they later got their butts kicked out pretty quick when the Tyrannosaurids rose and started replacing them and just about any other predatory species.

"What is Nanotyrannus's advantage in the Nanotyrannus vs. Utahraptor match? I'd bet on the guy with the eleven-inch claws."

Nanotyrannus is a juvinile of some Tyrannosaurid, having a juvinile structure. I'm not sure why some insist it MUST be Tyrannosaurus, but it was the juvinile of some Tyrannosaurid species. So an adult Nanotyrannus/Tyrannosaurus/Albertosaurus/insert probable Tyrannosaurid adult species form here, would have a good size advantage (or in some cases, even make the fight completely one sided). Though Nano could always bite Utahraptor to death quite easily. Tyrannosaurid designs are considerably stronger and tougher pound for pound then raptor designs too. If all else fails, Nanotyrannus would be more then fleet footed enough, thanks to his Tyrannosaurid limbstry, to escape Utahraptor easily. It's win win! Utahraptor could do some damage with a kick or a swipe, but I doubt he could implement it well against Nano (we're assuming the small nano based on the skull here), given Nano's considerable advantage in speed. On the other hand, if Nano bit Utahraptor, we could have quite nasty results. Raptor designs seem to be full of bells and tinkles to me, but I'm really comtemplative about the idea if that really makes them deadily. Sometimes, simple brute force, strenght, speed and a nasty bite is all you need to make a very nasty close-quarter animal. The raptors always seemed kinda underpowered and fragile to me, even Utahraptor.

"Allosaurids were never the dominant predator? Then what was the dominant predator in the American Late Jurassic? Ceratosaurus? Torvosaurids?"

Yeah, I doubt the Allosaurids ever became dominant the way the Tyrannosaurids did. They did face pretty stiff competition from the Ceratosaurs and the Torvosaurids. If they ever were dominant, it wasn't anywhere as close to what the Tyrannosaurids achieved, which was kinda a genera monopoly on the killing trade. (Unless you want to listen the Horner's theory that the Tyrannosaurids were nothing but garbage trucks cleaning up after small, 2 meter raptors as they cleaned off 9-ton triceratops and hardosaurs!)

"Carharodontosaurus vs Giganotosaurus"

Carharodontosaurus, Giganotosaurus was pretty all bark, little bite. Both are Allosaurids but Carharodontosaurus seems to be tougher to me. Not against Tyrannosaurus though, as almost everything would be a foregone conclusion. But since not every foe Carharodontosaurus faces will be of such amazing quality, he could have an edge over Giganotosaurus.

Allosaurus packs could probably hunt anything.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 1, 2001


Natasha C - Tim is the real expert but I think I can help. Large sauropods are thought to get on to their hind legs and support themselves with their heavy tails to get at high foliage. Brachiosaurids probably did not need to though, their necks where so long. But blood vessel guards, bony rods coming out of the tail vertabra at the bottom to prevent blood vessels being damaged when the tail touched the ground have been found on sauropod tail vertabra, leading paleontologists to think that sauropods did sometimes get on their hind legs to get at high foliage using their tails for support.

OK people. I'll try to explain. Lions. Lions are costantly at war with hyeanas. Hyeanas. With JAWS more powerfull than lions, bone - crunching jaws, and in BIG clans. But lions are still a successfull predator. They still "rule" the African plains. Like allosaurs and torvosaurs. Lions and hyenas. Also, there are cheetahs and leopards. But they hunt different prey or the same prey in different habitats to lions, even though they live in the same countries. So they don't compete with lions or hyenas. So maybe allosaurs did not compete with the very different ceratosaurs. They where ALL successfull. But one family was not significantly better than the others, like say tyrannosaurids are way better than the predators that lived at the same time as they did, so one family did not compete better than the other families and therefore wipe them out.
from da masta, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 1, 2001


T rex vs Carcharodontosaurus. Very close one. Sometimes T rex would win, sometimes Carcha. But I keep stressing this point: An animals main goal in life is to mate and pass on it's genes. Killing another dinosaur and walking away EVEN SLIGHTLY INJURED would badly ruin your chances of mating with a female. Wounds go SEPTIC.
