Allosaurus

Allosaurus - 11 m - 2.5 ton - L. Jurassic
Although reaching a length of 11 metres, this figure gives a deceptive idea of its size due its unusually long tail which accounts for two-thirds of its entire length

Carnotaurus

Carnotaurus - 7.5 m - 2 ton - L. Jurrasic
This animal had a similar body size to Allosaurus but a much shorter tail, hence its deceptive size when the lengths of the two animals are given. In this case, comparison of body-weights gives a better idea of their relationship.

Suchomimus


Suchomimus - 11 m - 3 ton
A close relative of Spinosaurus but with a much less developed sail on its back. It has a long, slender crocile-like jaw and was quite possibly a fish-eater like its cousin Baryonxy.

Spinosaurus

Spinosaurus - 15 m    4 ton - L. Cret
Another example of a false impression of size. Like Allosaurus its huge tail accounts for more than 50% of its body length. Also, its magnificent sail adds nearly 2 metres to its height.


Acrocanthosaurus - 12 m
4 ton - E. Cret
This animal was an Allosaur and, as such, had the long tail associated with them. However, it was notable for its spines along its back. more info

Torvosaurus


Torvosaurus - 12 m - 3.5 ton
Another of the longest animals ever discovered. It has a more slender body than Tyrannosaurus. Torvosaurus is a close relative of Megalosaurus, which is a couple of metres shorter. The two share certain charcateristics of the hip bones.

Tyrannosaurus


Tyrannosaurus - 12 m - 6 ton - L. Cret
Once the undisputed heavyweight champion. T rex is not the longest, but still one of the most heavily-built. However, a recent find suggests that T rex might still claim the title back. A skeleton has been discovered which suggestes a specimen nearly 10% bigger than the largest known T rex. more info

Mapusaurus

Mapusaurus   12.5 m - 5 ton - L. Cret
A dinosaur from Argentina which is part of the Charcharodontosauridae family however it is a close relative of Giganotosaurus rather than Charcharadontosaurus itself.

Carcharodontosaurus

Carcharodontosaurus   13.5 m - 7.5 ton - E. & L. Cret
The slightly smaller African cousin of Giganotosaurus. Smaller versions were known for decades but a recent skull 5' 4" in length had created a new estimation for the size of this animal.

Tyrannotitan

Tyrannotitan   ?14 m - ?7.5 ton - Cret
This is a newly discovered dinosaur about which little is known. Size estimates range from 13.7m to 15.2m so it could yet be the largest known carnivore of all time. It is of the Carcharodontosauridae family also,

Giganotosaurus

Giganotosaurus - 14 m - 8 ton
The new champion. Skeletons are incomplete and the estimates of the size might still fluctuate, but it does seem larger than T rex and its related Charcharodontosauridae, with the possible exception of Tyrannotitan.
