Yes, I should have said North American allosauroids. The only North

I haven't taken measurements of the specimen myself, but I recall hearing
that the presently North Carolina Museum specimen of _Acrocanthosaurus_ has
a skull only a few inches short of the length of the skull of the "Sue"
_Tyrannosaurus_ specimen. Much more gracile, though.
