A big old scale I made of the largest terrestrial animals of the Mesozoic compared to some more modern mammals.

Only the Amphicoelias and Spinosaurus are mine, the rest are from Hartman, GSP, Raul Martin, and Nima Sassani.

They are as follows, Blue Whale, Ceratopsipes, Tyrannoaurus, Amphicoelias, Elephant, Spinosaurus, Broome Titanosaur, Stegosaurus, "Brachiosaurus n.", Indricotherium, "Mamenchisaurus s.", Ankylosaurus, Therizinosaurus, Huaxiaosaurus, and Giganotosaurus.


Note: I believe the Indrik is a bit too large, but who cares...

great scale!


@08pateldan: I like your comparisons, but two points:
-making scales with the upper and lower figures is a great idea, but you have to keep in mind the proportions change. Spinosaurus would keep it´s head size, whether it is 18m or 14m
-imo the reconstructions look a bit too bulky

Good work nevertheless!

Thanks Theropod, this is the first size comparison I have posted on Carnivora, other than the pliosaur comparison on the size comparisons of the zoology section

That is not the Dal Sasso specimen, that's the destroyed holotype!

As you can see, that Spinosaurus was scaled to the size of the holotype, not the Dal Sasso specimen(which is MSNM 4047)
