Giganotosaurus and Epanterias
Here are two questions re: those sexy supercarnivores:
1) Was Giganotosaurus an "overgrown" Allosaur like Carcharodontosaurus, with
the same slender, slashing teeth and large, long-clawed forearms? Or was it
more like a Tyrannosaurid, with an apparently crushing, trauma-inducing bite
and vestigial forelimbs? How do we say which of the supercarnivores was "the
largest" when our evidence is the remains of a few carcasses which are, in
fact, substantially similar in size? Was Giganotosaurus as pea-brained as
2) Epanterias or not? 'Nuff said.
Any info appreciated.
