It's been a long time since I've done something like this. This list is, in my opinion, about as accurate as they come. It combines all of the latest scientific discoveries and my own calculations. I'd be more than happy to explain how I arrived at a certain size for these animals. Keep in mind not every giant theropod can be included...

 

10. Saurophaganax

11.3 meters long, 3.6 tons(based on type specimen and scaling from Allosaurus fragilis)

 

9. Acrocanthosaurus

11.6 meters, 5.6 tons(based on type specimen and scaling from Giganotosaurus)

 

8. Zhuchengtyrannus

11 meters, 6 tons(based on type specimen and scaling from Tyrannosaurus)

 

7. Mapusaurus

12.1 meters, 6.3 tons(based on adult specimens and scaling from Giganotosaurus)

 

6. Tyrannotitan

12.2 meters, 6.5 tons(based on type specimen and scaling from Giganotosaurus)

 

5. Siats

12.5 meters, 6.7 tons(my proposed adult size based on subadult specimen and scaling from Neovenator)

 

4. Spinosaurus

14-15 meters, 6-7.1 tons(based on type specimen, 2014 skeleton, Ibrihim's studies, and scaling from Baryonyx)

 

3. Giganotosaurus

12.4-13.2 meters, 6.8-8.2 tons(based on type and largest specimens)

 

2. Carcharodontosaurus

13.2 meters, 8.2 tons(based on Sereno's skull and scaling from Giganotosaurus)

 

1. Tyrannosaurus

11.9-12.3 meters, 7.6-9.1 tons(based on CM 9380 and Sue, excluding fragmentary remains)

Nice! :)

 

It's been a while since we've had a list like this.

Forum signatures are always so hard to come up with...

Cool list, sometimes I do wonder if there is a predator larger than these si out there, waiting to be discovered, in the ground somewhere...

IT'S TIME TO DU-DU-DU-DU-DUEL!!!

So glad to ead another one of your posts! I agree with it for the most part. If I may share my qucik opinnion? I don't like arguements and never really spoke out becuase it'd always end that way. But here goes...

I always stood by Spino, but ever since he wlked on all fours...eh...

Now I love T-Rex but to me, he's not the largest (from my knowledge and beliefs) 

I Stand by Carcharodontosaurus as the largest. Followed by Giganotosaurus, then  T-Rex and then Spino.

 

But really they all loose to the Indominus Rex! (Joke she's not real sadly) 

 

(Also like the forum signature ;) )

 

But yeah, glad to read your post and I respect your opinnion. :D

That's cool, I respect your opinion. If you want, I'm willing to explain how I arrived at these figures in more detail.
