The average height of an allosaurus was 17ft (a little over 5m) while T. Rex was about 23ft (7m) tall on average.

Since Suchomimus was more closely related to Baryonyx (from Europe) than to Spinosaurus—although that genus also lived in Africa—the distribution of spinosaurids cannot be explained as vicariance resulting from continental rifting. Along the midline of the animal's back ran a low dorsal sail, built from the long neural spines of its vertebrae. Crocodylomorphs were abundant; represented by the giant pholidosaur species Sarcosuchus imperator, as well as small notosuchians like Anatosuchus minor, Araripesuchus wegeneri, and Stolokrosuchus lapparenti. The best way to hunt prey is to take a quick bite out of a target and retreat. For a better experience, please enable JavaScript in your browser before proceeding. Spinosaurines would then have evolved in the south (Africa and South America: in Gondwana) and baryonychines in the north (Europe: in Laurasia), with Suchomimus the result of a single north-to-south dispersal event. [1], The furcula was V-shaped and indicates a high and narrow trunk.

It is no contest to say that Tyrannosaurus Rex is the more popular of the two dinosaurs, having captured the hearts and minds of young children for as long as it has been known to man. [13] They shared features such as long, narrow, crocodile-like skulls; sub-circular teeth, with fine to no serrations; the terminal rosette of the snout; and a secondary palate that made them more resistant to torsion.

[2] The scapula had a rectangular acromion, or attachment site for clavicle (collarbone).

I also doubt Sarcosuchus could beat Suchomimus--the latter was probably an endotherm, and therefore had better energy reserves. [5] In a 2003 analysis, German paleontologist Oliver Rauhut concurred with this. Charig and Milner speculated in 1986 that Baryonyx may have crouched by the riverbank and used its claws to gaff fish out of the water, similarly to grizzly bears. Suchomimus was mainly a piscivore, so it wouldn't be quite as adept at combat as an Allosaur, so it would need a size advantage.

The femur (thighbone) was straight and robust, with a length of 107 cm (42 in) in the holotype.

The Sucho also has those wicked hand claws. Further back, there were at least 22 teeth per upper jaw side in the maxilla, while the entire lower jaw side carried 32 teeth in the dentary bone.

[1], The upper jaw had a prominent kink just behind the rosette, protruding downwards; this convexly curved part of the maxilla had the longest teeth of the entire skull. A 28 foot Allosaur vs a 34 Suchomimus. Perhaps if i sized up the Allo to about 32 feet? [20] In 1987, British biologist Andrew Kitchener hypothesized a use in scavenging carcasses,[21] though this has been critiqued by other researchers who pointed out that in most cases, a carcass would have already been largely emptied out by its initial predators. Suchomimus might also be a junior synonym of the contemporaneous spinosaurid Cristatusaurus lapparenti, although the latter taxon is based on much more fragmentary remains. [1] Sereno and colleagues proposed that spinosaurids were initially distributed across the supercontinent Pangea, but split with the opening of the Tethys Sea. Partial skeleton found in 1902. Azrael Finalstar, Feb 5, 2013. This was later confirmed in 1997 with the discovery of partially digested fish scales found in the Baryonyx holotype. How long does it take amphibians to reproduce? Edit or create new comparisons in your area of expertise. Spinosaurines are characterized by straight, unserrated and more widely spaced teeth, and the small size of their first premaxillary teeth. Suchomimus (meaning "crocodile mimic") is a genus of spinosaurid dinosaur that lived between 125 and 112 million years ago in what is now Niger, during the Aptian to early Albian stages of the Early Cretaceous period. In 1998, Sereno, Allison Beck, Didier Dutheil, Boubacar Gado, Hans Larsson, Gabrielle Lyon, Jonathan Marcot, Oliver Rauhut, Rudyard Sadleir, Christian Sidor, David Varricchio, Gregory Wilson and Jeffrey Wilson named and described the type species Suchomimus tenerensis. The praemaxillae had an upward branch excluding the maxillae from the external nares (bony nostrils).

Typical walking speed of about 5 mph. Only the third metacarpal (long bone of the hand) is known; showing a robust morphology (form). IMO Tyrannosaurus could've overcome Giganotosaurus, despite the latter's greater size, because Tyrannosaurus had extremely powerful jaws and teeth. The lower jaws were greatly elongated and narrow, forming a rigid structure as their dentaries touched each other at the midline, reinforcing the mandible against torsional (bending and twisting) forces. There is actual fossil evidence that a Stegosaurus repelled an Allosaurus. I disagree with your outcome for the Giganotosaurus vs. Tyrannosaurus battle. Allosaurus is estimated to have a life span of approximately 25 years, given evidence in the fossil record. There are those who insist that Tyrannosaurus was a scavenger, while there are others that state Tyrannosaurus ran down and killed its prey, however in spite of this debate, there is no question that Tyrannosaurus was a carnivore.
