RE: Fixing dinosaurian carnivour question


This is a very difficult question to answer. For starters how does one tell
if the specimen at hand is fully grown, or if it is a small or large
individual of its species? Given the low sample sizes of most theropod
species can we know what the mean adult size was? For example take two
contenders for the smallest known non-avian carnivorous dinosaur
Compsognathus and Sinosauropteryx.
