- 11 m - 2.5 ton - L. Jurassic
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
- 7.5 m - 2 ton - L. Jurrasic
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 - 11
m - 3 ton
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.
- 15 m 4 ton - L. Cret
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.
- 12 m
4 ton - E. Cret
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
- 12 m - 3.5 ton
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.
- 12 m - 6 ton - L. Cret
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
m - 5 ton - L. Cret
dinosaur from Argentina which is part of the Charcharodontosauridae family however
it is a close relative of Giganotosaurus rather than Charcharadontosaurus itself.
m - 7.5 ton - E. & L. Cret
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.
m - ?7.5 ton - Cret
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,
- 14 m - 8 ton
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.
