As Darkness Falls by Fragillimus335 As Darkness Falls by Fragillimus335
A family group of Kentrosaurus tries to protect their young from a pair of slender Elaphrosaurus. A huge bull Giraffatitan nonchalantly wanders by. Giraffatitan is quite a bit bigger than most people imagine. The massive 45x 72 foot mounted skeleton that is oh-so famous is actually not an adult specimen! This large adult is roughly 50 feet tall, 88 feet long, and ~45 tons in weight. With such giant size the battle below is merely an annoyance.

These dinosaurs all hail from Tanzania in Jurassic Africa.

Wow, great scene. I love kentrosaurus and the pattern you've given yours is stupendous and very unique. As a predator it would be hard to take your eyes off that striped tail swinging back and forth, ready to punch a hole or two into your side if you happen to get too close!

Isn't Elaphrosaurus an herbivore?

Nope, it is a ceratosaurian theropod.  You may be thinking of Edaphosaurus.

No, I know what I said. I remember hearing form somewhere that Elaphrosaurus was more related to Limusaurus (also a Ceratosaur).

Well, being about 50x the mass of Limusaurus and retaining all other "carnivorous theropod" features, e.g.: foreswept pubis, gracile build, ect. I wouldn't make the jump to calling it herbivorous.  In fact I would bet Limusaurus was actually omnivorous.

Sorry, I didn't mean fully herbivorous. I honestly see it and Limusaurus as opportunistic omnivores.
