The largest carnivorous dinosaur
Who was the biggest carnivorous dinosaurs? After repeated comparisons and checks various sources list of features. So, 15 leaders of today:
Spinosaurus (Spinosaurus aegyptiacus) – 15 meters!
Tyrannosaurus (Tyrannosaurus rex) – 12,8 meters.
Giganotosaurus (Giganotosaurus carolinii) – 12,5 m.
Tyrannotitan (Tyrannotitan chubutensis) – 12,2 m.
Epanteriya (Epanterias amplexus) – 12,1 m.
Karharodontozavr (Carcharodontosaurus saharicus) – 12 m.
Oksalayya (Oxalaia quilombensis) – 12 m.
Tarbosaurus (Tarbosaurus bataar) – 12 m.
Bahariyazavr (Bahariasaurus ingens) – 11,9 m.
Acrocanthosaurus (Acrocanthosaurus atokensis) – 11,5 m.
Tszilantayzavr (Chilantaisaurus tashuikouensis) – 11 m.
Suchomimus (Suchomimus tenerensis) – 11 m.
Ekriksinatozavr (Ekrixinatosaurus novasi) – 11 m.
Yangchuanosaurus (Yangchuanosaurus) – 11 m.
– 11 m.
Among them Tyrannosaurus Rex – the best known and studied. Spinosaurus and karharodontozavra still remodel of scattered fragments, so look forward to the new digs. Maybe it shows up larger individuals, or even the whole family.
Ask how small compared to their modern counterparts of prey? For example, the largest snake (reticulated python) reaches a length of 6.95 meters. Longest saltwater crocodile of about 6.7 m. A hunter of large mammals, polar bear, only 3 meters. Figure allows you to imagine what was the largest dinosaur predator.

It is important to note that the largest carnivorous dinosaurs – does not mean the most formidable. In the future, we will determine the list of the most powerful beings. We take into account the latest scientific assessment and periodically update the list. Follow our articles.
