RE: Saurophaganx vs Tyrannosaurus size

     Of course, this is from a Tyrannosaurus chauvinist who thinks that,
     slight differences in size notwithstanding, Tyrannosaurus could have
     mopped the floor with Giganotosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus, or any of
     the other contenders for the title of "biggest" theropod.

This is the same specimen that Dan Chure had at DNM right. I saw them there
a few years ago. The metatarsals are 'shorter' but aren't the femur lengths
closer in length? One needs to look at the 'whole' skeleton (or as much of
it as you can) to decide how big it is in relation to other animals.
