This massive predator was found in 1998 in Niger by Paul Sereno, Allison Beck, Didier Dutheil, Boubacar Gado, Hans Larsson, Gabrielle Lyon, Jonathan Marcot, Oliver Walter Mischa Rauhut, Rudyard Sadleir, Christian Sidor, David Varricchio, Gregory Wilson and Jeffrey Wilson. The Suchomimus is believed to have been both Ichthyophagous (was able to subsist primarily on fish) and at times a Carnosaur (was able to subsist on red meat if no other food source). The Suchomimus type specimen discovered in Niger was originally estimated at being 11 meters and weighing 5 tons, though these estimates were later reduced to 9.5 meters and 2.5 tons because the type specimen was found to be a sub-adult. Later studies suggest that a full grown Suchomimus ranged in size and weight from 3-6 tons, stood 3-5 meters tall, and was 9-12 meters in length. The Suchomimus snout contained 122 conical teeth that differ from most other conical teeth because the Suchomimus teeth bent backwards slightly and contained serrations. It was a heavily built dinosaur with its body being covered with powerful muscles, these muscles made the Suchomimus bite very lethal because of the combined strength of its teeth and its gripping strength. The Suchomimus is believed to have been a bipedal dinosaur unlike the larger spinosaurus giving it the ability to use its massive claws to rake its prey thats trapped in its powerful jaws.

suchomimus is not a carnosaur

yangchuanosauris was a very large and powerful beast. Found in china this beast is notibale was its abnormal bulk. With a fairly robust skull and body, this animal had a bite stronger then other allosaurids its size. At a weight if 4 to 5 tons plus the that hatchet bite mechanism which would be about 4 to 6 tons which would be enough to break the spine of the suchomimus. And with 7 to 8 inch hand claws on large, powerful armS attached to a 30 to 33 foot long 15 foot tall body was truly an impressive and strong beast.

While no stress tests have been done on Suchomimus jaw and bite strength it is thought that its bite force was considerable so it could keep prey from wriggling free, since the fish it likely caught would weigh several hundred pounds and be strong enough to free itself from a less powerful predator. Another deadly adaptation Suchomimus showed was long powerful arms that held 12 in long claws on the thumbs, and 4-6 in claws on the rest of its hand. These claws are thought to have acted like meat hooks so the Suchomimus had more control over struggling prey, some paleontologists even think that after the prey died the Suchomimus could use its claws like literal meat hooks and carried prey, though no test have been done to confirm or deny this theory.

Why does the title say "Tyrannotitan vs Oxalaia", when it's Suchomimus vs Yangchuanosaurus?
