Sipno 1 (the one that's in the way of the Paralatian herd) : Sorry buddy, roads closed. Charcara: Why exactly? Spino 2: Nun yo bizzness, bigmouth. Carchara: Oh, so you wanna do this the hard way, eh? Spino 1: Listen, we don't want any trouble. Carchara: Neither do I, I just need thorough to get a quick meal. Spino 2: Let em through. Spino 1 and Carchara: Eh, wha? Spino 2: The guy's hungry for Jurassic's sake, let him through. Spino 1: On second thought, you can pass. Carchara: Thank you for your patronage.
Spinosaurus had a pitifully weak bite (as far as theropods go) and their large sail make them very frail (if the sail was used for thermoregulation a wounded sail would probably result in the Spinosaurus bleeding to death). Carcharodontosaurus was to apex predator of it's environment.
The bite of a Spinosaurus had a strength of an estimated 2-3 tons. A T. rex had a bite force of an estimated 5 tons. The bite of a Spinosaurus was not as powerful as that of the king, but still powerful.
The bone structure that made up the sail/hump were just extensions for the spine. They were attached to it, but not so tight that it would kill the Spinosaurus if it were to break. And I doubt that any apex Theropod would die of blood loss any time soon. I mean, come on. Take the Allosaurus for example; they survived injuries that would kill. Not only that, Allosaurus were not only smaller but also weaker and lesser evolved than Spinosaurus.
I tell you, if they could survive something such as shattered bones or broken jaws, a Spinosaurus (being higher evolved, larger, and more powerful) could survive something like that as well.
I'm not saying that Carcharodonotsaurus is weak, I am just saying that Spinosaurus would be the only animal capable of rivaling the Carcharodontosaurus in their place and time.
Dear atrox your coloring and position of your spinosaurus is very attractive for me. many thanks! justt a question...Spinosaurus was the longest carnivors dinosaur, Therefore, What happen for spinosaurs in your picture?
and What is this huge orange Dinosaur? it is bigger than Spinosaurs....Do we have such huge orange dinosaur in Africa ?
Эти спинозавры, видать , сами не голодные( позавтракали травогрызами уже) ... Сумасшедшая проработка чешуи! Но , мне кажется, она должна быть разной на разных частях тела... Я могу ошибаться , конечно...
