The largest predatory dinosaur

The largest known predatory dinosaur was Spinosaurus (Spinosaurus – „spine lizard”). It was 12 – 18 m (41 – 59 ft) in length and 7 – 21 tons (15,432 – 46,297 lb) in weight. Spinosaurus is the heaviest and the largest known theropod dinosaur.


Spinosaurus lived in North Africa, from the lower Albian to the lower Cenomanian stages of the Cretacreous period, in other words, about 112 – 97 million years ago. Spinosaurus probably was larger predatory dinosaur than Tyrannosaurus.

    I think if Spinosaurus fought against T.Rex, the T.Rex would have won, although Spinosaurus was bigger. - Animals & Dinosaurs
