Mapusaurus was that big? The largest estimation on the wikipedia is only 40 ft, so there is a new estimation for it?

Curiously enough the Spinosaurus shows the new silhouette according to Ibrahim but with the not-too-short legs and the bipedal stance according to what Hartman suggests.

As per the new reconstruction but slightly reduced it's neck/tail length, somewhat increased it's leg height and slightly increased it's body size.

You know, one of these days you've gotta make a Gigantopithecus Sameer, that would be awesome!:) I can just imagine you making an amazing Deviant art drawing of Gigantopithecus standing at least 10ft tall and weighing 1,200 pounds! SO EXITING!!!!!:D

Out of date. You need to add Pelagornis sandersi, largest flighted bird. I LOVE this chart btw. <3

This is a really good reference. I always try to find charts like this, but I never can. I'm not so good at visualizing height and such, so this is a great help.

hmm..lol.Thanks for telling me.I changed it.It's the length and weight for some other animal which was accidentally turned on by me.I have hidden some other length/weights of animals in this document which i have.In the beginning when i made this chart,i also added the weight,length,height and as the animals are getting more then there is not much space.So i decided only to mention the species names.However this chart will complete change to match the Megafauna image when it gets completed someday.

I've read the recent book of Richard Ellis about sperm whales and he doubts many got above 18 m. In fact there's no actual data of one reaching 21 m. I'd suggest to place it at 18 m. 21 m sperm whale is like 7 m white shark, suspected but never demonstrated.
It seems like the giant megalodon could have exceeded 18 m but for now this seems fine.

You should replace a Kronosaurus-like model instead of Pliosaurus. It is possible that Pliosaurus macromerus was not reaching 13 m and was about the size of Kronosaurus at 10-11 m. However, I suggest you to replace it with a kronosaur-like model because it seems that the Monster of Aramberri, a not yet named Mexican pliosaur, is related to kronosaurs and being between 12 and 14 m. In other words, this pliosaur, related to kronosaurs, is the most likely largest pliosaur to date.

I'm no amateur arguing without knowing, I can give you scientific ref. for this, the one about the pliosaur is very recent.

However the MoA’s appendicular elements predicted a considerably greater size based on Liopleurodon, so it probably has proportionally huge flippers, like the svalbad specimens for example, which will make it look somewhat Pliosaurus-like in morphology. Also, the chart labels the silhouette as Pliosaurus, so it would be a bit strange to make it look like a brachaucheniid.

I've justly asked to replace this shape by a Kronosaurus-like model.

theropod1 Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2014
Exactly, but why make a Pliosaurus look like a Kronosaurus, and why assume the Monster or Aramberri looked like Kronosaurus? That it was related to it does not mean it was similar to it in gross morphology, otherwise we’d look more similar to archaeothyris than Archaeothyris looked to Petrolacosaurus…

Already the paddles are very Kronosaurus-like in the MoA. A kronosaurid affiliation suggests a kronosaur approaching shape.

theropod1 Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2014
There is no such thing as a "kronosaurid". Who claimed the MoA’s paddles were Kronosaurus-like?
I merely read hints that this specimen was related to Kronosaurus, but that doesn’t imply similar body shape.

Kronosaurus has relatively short paddles compared to Pliosaurids. On the other hand, the femoral head of UANL-FCT-R2 gave an estimate of 15m based on an immature Liopleurodon specimen, so the flippers must be very big relative to its size.

No, the account in the book says :

"the small dimension of the flippers with respect to the body size, hint a kronosaurid affinity of the Aramberri pliosaur"

It had at least kronosaurid-like flippers. So the image here likely does not correspond to that pliosaur.

Wikipedia says the largest sperm whales can reach 20.5 m.
Reply
:iconliej:
liej Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2014
Yes but that's an old and unverifiable record, and 20.5 m is not really 21 m. In scientific litterature, Physeter is typically listed at 18.3 m for a large bull.

The sperm whale is not 21 m long in this picture. It is 67 ft, wich is more like 20.5 m, not 21 m.

Making hundreds of animal silhouettes is very easy. Anyone can do that by saving animal images from different Artists and changing them to silhouettes. For example,like this ---

m0ai.deviantart.com/art/Paleo-…


The thing is,here i have put the silhouettes of animals that i have made so far. I didn't made Purussaurus yet but i will make it.If you see in the description ,you can note that i mentioned as 'Will be Updated'. This image will slowly keep on getting updated until the Megafauna image gets complete.
