HUGE THANKS TO GMKGOJI FOR THE BANNER!

The information about Torvosaurus:

  • Largest theropod of its time
  • Was as long as a school bus
  • Weighed as much as two hippos
  • Could run as fast as a Turkey
  • Was definitely a carnivore

About Torvosaurus

Torvosaurus was a dinosaur which lived approximately 145 to 154 million years ago during the late Jurassic Period. It was first discovered in 1972 by Jim Jensen and Kenneth Stadtman in the Dry Mesa quarry in Colorado. It was subsequently named in 1979 by Peter Malcolm Galton and James A. Jensen. It was given the name Torvosaurus—a name which means “savage lizard.”

This dinosaur was a fierce dinosaur which was approximately 40 feet long, 8 feet high at the hips and probably weighed around 3 tons. It had a long, narrow snout that was perfect for crushing bone and tearing flesh. Because of its large size, some paleontologists have speculated that Torvosaurus probably didn’t need to hunt—that it could just scare other predators off of their kills. However, this view isn’t held by all paleontologists. Some of them believe that this dinosaur had the size and the tools to be an apex predator. That it could have easily taken down some of the large herbivores of the time. Herbivores such as Apatosaurus, Brachiosaurus, Camarasaurus, Diplodocus and Stegosaurus. It may have even attacked and fed off of the carnivores of the time, although that it less likely. Although it is possible that if this dinosaur encountered an injured or dying carnivore that it may have killed it and eaten it. This would have been possible because most predators are opportunistic—meaning they will seize any available opportunity to feed.

An interesting fact about Torvosaurus is that some specimens of this dinosaur have not only been found in North America but have also been found in Portugal. The reason that this dinosaur has been found on two different continents is because Europe and North America were once connected at one time and these dinosaurs could have just walked over the land bridges.

The information about Saurophaganax:

  • Could run as fast as a grizzly bear
  • Was as long as a school bus
  • Weighed as much as two hippos
  • May have eaten the equivalent of 600 hamburgers daily
  • Lived in what is now Oklahoma


About Saurophaganax

Saurophaganax is a dinosaur which lived during the late Jurassic Period in what is now North America, about 150 million years ago. It was first discovered by John Willis Stovall in 1931 and was named Saurophagus maximus ten years later in 1941. Eventually, it was discovered that this name was already used back in 1831 to name a particular bird. Therefore, a new name was required for this animal species. In 1995, the problem was solved when Daniel Chure renamed the dinosaur Saurophaganax—a name which literally means “lizard eating master.”

This dinosaur was approximately 43 feet long, 14 feet tall and weighed approximately 3 tons. It is a large therapod dinosaur that was capable of walking on two and probably subsisted off a carnivorous diet. This would have made this dinosaur the apex predator of its time and capable of feeding off of dinosaurs such as Stegosaurus and Camptosaurus. It may have also scavenged food, as many therapods are thought to have done, or stolen carcasses from other dinosaurs.

An interesting fact about Saurophaganax is that some while most paleontologists believe this dinosaur is its own species—some have speculated that it might be just a large Allosaurus. These scientists argue that there isn’t enough fossil material to truly be able to differentiate between Saurophaganax and Allosaurus. That the only apparent difference is their vertebrae.

Another fascinating fact about this dinosaur is that is may have been bigger than what would have been in its best interest. Its large size would have required an extraordinary amount of food—maybe up to a couple hundred pounds a day. That may mean that it was more difficult for this dinosaur to find enough food on a daily basis. That is why it may have had to scavenge or steal other dinosaur’s meals. Not only would this have been easier for this dinosaur to do but would have required less work.

The battle begins!

A Saurophaganax was running to his nest,but a Torvosaurus stopped him,having a terrifying roar,it sure scare Sauro,but he bit his neck,Torvo cut him in the leg,Sauro suddenly moved slower,he was fast,but now he isn't because of his wound,then Torvo use his tail to knock down Sauro,Sauro fell unconscious,Torvo thought he was dead,after some minutes,Sauro woke up,he was near his nest,and he saw Torvo hunting his partner,Sauro then got up and ran with all his speed to Torvo,and then,Torvo got bit in the neck,but this time,the bite was more deadlier,after that,Sauro killed Torvo by snapping his neck,and then he and his family ate Torvo.

Winner:Saurophaganax

Reason:It is like an evolved Allosaurus,its speed,bite force,and size made it win this battle.
