Definitely predator. There are no terrestrial scavengers, because they would all starve to death.

Why the old 42 ft long estimate is appeared here? It was came from the old estimation, wich have too long tail. And I think your previous weight estimates (6.5 tonnes for 40 ft long Tyrannosaurus, 7 tonnes for 43 ft long Giganotosaurus, 8 tonnes for 45 ft long Carcharodontosaurus and 11 tonnes for 52/53 ft long Spinosaurus) are far the best weight estimates for the 4 Kings I have ever seen, much bettter than that ranges.

42 or 43 ft long / 9 or 10 tonnes can be for large individuals.

Really? I've never herd of any t-rex bigger than 40 ft. Sue's the biggest and she's 40 ft long and weighs 9 tonnes. Can A Tyrannosaurus really measure 43 ft long and weigh over 10 tonnes or is this another estimation I should ignore. Because I've herd tall tails for over exaggerated size estimates for Theropods like they've say Carcharodontosaurs weighed 15 tonnes, if that's so, that's not average and it probably weighed around 7-8 tonnes while Giganotosaurus was 43 or 45 ft long and weighed 7-8 tonnes maybe more and had a maxed out size of 13 tonnes. And Spinosaurus may have had a maximum size of 59 ft and 16-20 tonnes or so.

Perhaps 10 tonnes is wrong ,but may be 9 tonnes at max.The Carcharodontosaurs and Giganotosaurus are either in similar size or may be one of them slightly bigger than the other.Both of them are in the 7 - 8 tonne range. 15 tonnes for Carcharodontosaurs and 20 tonnes for Spinosaurus seems very wrong.In old estimates also,10 - 11 tonne was legit average weight for Spino and now it is reduced as well which is equal to those above Carcharodontosaurids.

Probably there never was a theropod which could weigh 20 tonnes. Spinosaurus certainly didn't weigh as much as the Paraceratherium or some average Sauropod.
         Those giant theropods have to catch prey,have to move somewhat faster.10 - 12 tonnes seems to be legit max weight for them.However we don't if Spinosaurus,Carcharodontosaurs and Giganotosaurus would have weighed max at 10 - 12 tonnes.

And just how heavy is Paraceratherium respectively? Because I thought you said Spinosaurus had a maximum weight of 10-12 tonnes and Paraceratherium is right between that size, he's 11 tonnes. So that means Spinosaurus and maybe other Theropods could reach him on max.

Wich large individuals? The largest known T. rex is Sue, and it is 40 ft long.

I remember as 42 ft reading somewhere before longtime. Here is the main site where it says 42 ft. However there it also says the hip is 13 ft high which is wrong.

I mentioned as 7 - 9 tonnes here and i want to say that different people use different estimates.Not everyone is going to agree with a same thing and i'm tired of seeing comments from some people who claim as their estimates are accurate.Well,no estimates for partially found extinct animals can be 100 % accurate and i don't take these things seriously.

T rex is just naturally awesome,no matter the circumstances.

I like that he hs a red head,since as relatives to avians male therapods likely had bright and outlandish colors for display.

Very nicely done! This is probably the most realiztic Tyrannosaurus I've seen since Jurassic Park, and the Iguana skin texture is awesome! :) One thing I'd like to point out, though, is Sue was closer to being around 13 meters in length and she would've weighed over 9 tons in recent studies, in fact our very own :iconscotthartman: did some analysis and proved she weighed more than both the holotype Giganotosaurus specimen and the supposedly larger incomplete one based only from half a jaw. That pretty much places her and T. rex alike ahead of Giganotosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus in largest size. I won't add in larger than Sue specimens such a MOR-008, otherwise it'd just get a bit too complicated.

Sue was like 12.3 m long.

I wouldn't call Sue bigger, it's heavier only by 200 kg, wich are meaningless in two 8 t animals. Both are roughly the same size.

:iconjustisaurus:
Justisaurus Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
I honestly don't understand what studies were made that caused scientists feel as though Sue was half a meter shorter than previously thought, besides the fact that the Field Museum's official site still claims it to be 12.8 meters.

When I said "bigger", I meant in mass. Actually, recent studies show Sue may have weighed anywhere from 8 to over 9.5 tons, besides a comparison study made by Scott Hartman that shows Sue was larger than even the supposedly larger fragmentary Giganotosaurus specimen.

Giganotosaurinae Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2014
Well, Field Museum is simply wrong; both Hartman and Hutchinson pointed out a 12.3 m figure for "Sue". 12.8 m is simply outdated, because old Sue's legs and tail were too long.

Hartman shown that "Sue" was close to 8,400 kg and MUPCv-95 close to 8,200 kg. That's not a big difference if you ask me.

Justisaurus Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
I'm still a little skeptical about those changes though, especially since there haven't been too many specific published documents describing the research that was done on it, not saying Hartman and Hutchinson aren't reliable, because clearly they are. I just wish their was more documentation on the study that decided that. Besides, T. rex more than likely had the potential to reach ~13 m.

That's kinda more around its lower weight estimates though, I've found quite a few sources describing Sue as topping 9.5 tons or more, one of Hutchinson's studies being one of them. I can provide them to you if you want further indication.

Giganotosaurinae Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014
By the same logic, I can claim that Hartman's MUPCv-95 is light, because Mazzetta in 2004 said that it topped at 9-10 t.

'Sue' is 12.3 m, 12.8 m is outdated, they claimed this when they gave 'Sue' a very long tails. If you use a 12.8 m 'Sue', I can claim that MUPCv-95 is 13.5-14 m long. I know, it's outdated (Mortimer estimated 13.5 m over 10 years ago, and the 14 m thing comes from some old recostructions made by GS Paul), but 12.8 m for 'Sue' is outdated, too. MOR008 may have been closer to 13 m at roughly 12.6-12.8 m long, but it was more gracile than 'Sue', thus it was as heavy or eventually slighty smaller.

:iconjustisaurus:
Justisaurus Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
Well the difference between my claim and yours is that Hutchinson's study is less than three years old, while Mazzetta's is over a decade old.

Alright, I guess I can't continue to support Sue being 12.8 meters, but MOR-008 proves that T. rex was capable of growing to lengths like that, and it likely did weigh around the same since it was a bit more slender in build than Sue.

Yes, but both are older than Hartman's estimates. If you use Hartman's Giganotosaurus, you should use even Hartman's use, as both were estimated following the same method.
