Hmmm... bobbybobbington4269 has got a point about Andrewsarchus. Because I don't see it either. Spongebob (Imagination) Nonetheless, your picture is still outstandingly good and creative. No doubt about it.

Could you do a size comparison of Amphicoelias please?

How did you work out te sizes for the sauropods?

I guess, you are talking about only Ruyangosaurus and Huanghetitan.Well, both are massive sauropods. Huanghetitan is said to have a wide belly. I couldn't find any proper picture of their skeletons as i expect. I asked Nima about their weights and he said both may weigh 70 - 80 tonnes. So,based on those mass, i just reduced their shoulder height by 1 feet than argentinosaurus. It might be wrong, they both may have a similar height of argentinosaurus or even more. But i just wanted to go with a slight smaller weight estimate.

That's ok. Ruyangosaurus did have a shorter femur than Argentinosaurus at 2.35m rather than 2.5m as well as a shorter tibia, which would naturally result in a lower body. However, Ruyangosaurus was a Longkosaur and was thus wider, probably weighing as much as or even slightly more than Argentinosaurus depending on how things go. Daxiatitan is probably 60-65 tonnes according to Bricksmashtv (I know I brought this up earlier but this was a backup). Yunmenlong would look amazing on here too, as would Fusuisaurus as they were also giant Asian beasts.

When looking at it's short body,it doesn't seem to me like daxiatitan is going to weigh 60 tonnes. Notocolossus is bigger than daxiatitan,as well as having a somewhat large body,the same for paralititan and they both weigh 60 tonnes which seems reasonable. There is not much info about yunmenlong.Previously i have seen the picture of fusuisaurus from Nima.Well,i won't be around to do any of them.My idea was to add megafauna images based on continents before i leave and i did it.The end is near within 2 or 3 days.

bricksmashtv.deviantart.com/ar… Here's some info about it if you're curious what it was. Also in the comments is how he came to give the estimates. Either way, Yun was larger and more robust, that's unquestionable.

Oh right. Fair enough. Do what you have to do. It's Austealia, Africa and North America, right? Those will be some very busy ones.

I have completed them before a week. There is one image to come which is of similar interest to you as well as for me. The old megafauna image is the one which is not that easy to update faster because of the overwhelming animals on land, there is not much space for new animals on land. So i removed some mammals but the dinosaurs are mandatory.The marine animals are filled in the available space perfectly which is not surprising. I have added some new ones too. The air is pretty much vacant with few flying animals as i didn't spent more time on those animals before. My guess is, within 2 days, max 3 days, this most viewed old classic will be updated and departure.

Ah ok. Don't overwhelm yourself- the thing with paleontology is how ridiculously frequent updates are. Like now it's believed Hatzegopteryx wasn't just a bigger headed version of Quetzalcoatlus, but a much more robust super predator.

Inform me when you leave. Do you have any other media?

You should have seen that robust version in my European megafauna. There will be a journal. Actually iam moving from my place.

Funny that some of these extinct mammals outsize some of the dinosaurs in height, like the indricotheres and proboscids.

The thing about some modern animals is they are so big today but they're dwarfed by most extinct animals.

For example, The Whale shark is the largest living fish today but is dwarfed by the extinct megalodon.
