Giganotosaurus was the second largest theropod we have record of, second only to Spinosaurus. The largest specimens of Gigontosaurus had skulls nearly 1.65 meters long, and probably reached ~13-13.5 meters long and 7-8 tons.
Wasn't Carcharodonotsaurus, Tyrannotitan, Bahariasaurus, Oxalaia, and Sauroniops either a little bigger or incredibly close (if not equal) in size with Giganotosaurus? Because when I look at size scales between massive theropods Carcharodontosaurus seems to outweigh and be a little longer/taller than Giganotosaurus. I don't know Tyrannotitan's, Oxalia's, or Bahariasaurus' exact measurements but I think that the other three are incredibly close in size if not exceed it a little, I could be greatly mistaken though, but I do know that Carcharodontosaurs was roughly 45 ft. from nose to tail. Who knows, Giganotosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus could be equal in size or one could be slightly larger than the other.But anyway I love this rendering of this theropod, how long did it take?
Carcharodontosaurus is indeed right about the same size as Giggy, but it isn't complete enough to be sure if it was a little bigger, or smaller. All the others are significantly smaller, I doubt any of them exceeded 6 tons in weight.
That is unlikely. The smaller specimen seems to be around 12.2-12.4 meters long, and the larger specimen was between 2-8% larger, or about 12.6-13.3 meters long. Although I'm sure there were other individuals that got to 14 meters once in a while.
He puts the largest specimen at 13-14 meters, I said 13.2, so that's fine. He just makes Carchy a bit too small.
The moral of the story is don't become attached to one dinosaur when it gets hyped up. Both Giganotosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus were basically the same size, strength, and looked about the same, and if anything Carcharodontosaurus dealt with bigger predators and prey.
As is happens Giganotosaurus was probably about the same size a the largest Tyrannosaurus specimens, (Sue). Although it may have been a meter or so longer it weighed nearly the same(6.5-7tons), and I do think the bone-crunching jaws of Tyrannosaurus would swing the fight in its favor! However if we do average against average Giganotosaurus would have a very narrow advantage.
Narrower than Tyrannosaurus, but not that narrow, the entire skull was a bit longer and probably taller than T.rex's, just not as wide. Not size so much as strength of the skull is the deciding factor.
