Re: Biggest Predators



Hi Folks

        Assuming that everything that is published is correct, the biggest
predator should be the Indian theropod Bruhathkayosaurus matleyi. 
Only the tibia has two meters!!!!! The length of the ilia is 1,2
meters!!!!! 
        For comparison, the Tyrannosaurus tibial length is only 1,2 meters. 
        If it's true, it should be (very easily) the biggest theropod and 
predator
ever found!

Any doubts?!?? See Glut (1997: 228) and Yadagiri & Ayyasami (1989).
