Clash of the Titans by Fragillimus335 Clash of the Titans by Fragillimus335
Spinosaurus and Tyrannosaurus, what else is there to say? Two massive super predators, displaced in time and space, being forced to face off for my enjoyment!

Spino was a 16-16.5 meter, 12+ ton mixed carnivore, and Tyrannosaurus was a 11-12+ meter, 6-8 ton hyper carnivore.

with updated limbs (even though this was still bipedal regardless of leg length), this is a stalemate on land (they can't kill each other), and a mismatch in water ( the spinosaur is much faster and more agile and can drown the tyrannosaur easily)

My thoughts exactly, I might even give the Tyrannosaur an edge unless the legs really aren't that short.

No, the narrow gape makes that theropod unable to do anything.

Since neither side can injure the other, nobody wins.

It's not that narrow!  It could easily crush the skull/neck region if it got within range.

Considering T. rex is built for attacking smaller game, I'm not sure it it would try this (or if the attack would not be deflected)

How small?  I wouldn't consider a 5-6 ton ceratopsian small.  And it would be much harder to bite than a Spinosaur neck.

That is small compared to giant crocodilians or sauropods (not that either hunted the latter)

There isn't a crocodilian much bigger than 5 tons.  A spinosaur neck isn't any more difficult to bite than a Triceratops neck.

Been wondering,  do you think that an updated, 15-17 meter Spinosaurus could stil stand up against a 11-13 meter T.rex despite the really small hindlimbs?

My personal opinion is that it would be a fair battle, where it would be harder for Spino to reach and knock down Rexy and game over.  On the other hand,  now that Spino is no longer taller at the hip, it's a bit easier for T.rex to strike the finishing bite.

So, my thoughts:

With long-legged Spino: 75/25 for the Spinosaurus. 
With updated spino: 60/40 for either competitor, depending on their edge of size range.

Tyrannosaurus seems much better equipped to win this encounter now, although Spinosaurus would definitely make it a close match.
