Finally...the largest of them all! by theropod1 Finally...the largest of them all! by theropod1
My reconstruction of S. aegyptiacus.
Some told me it looked "whale-like", others found it too bulky. So what?
There's a base for that, and that's the fact Spinosaurus had damn vertebrae, indicating a very long and deep body.
I used my skull reconstruction to fit IPHG 1912 VIII 19's postcrania and dentary together with MSNM V4047's rostrum and filled in what was left with the proportions of Cristatusaurus/Suchomimus and Baryonyx. Due to the much longer vertebrae seen in the holotype, I increased the torso's lenght a bit. I could have done the same with the tail, but I left it like it was.
In the end, the whole thing ended up at ~15m in tip-to-tip lenght, which means in axial lenght as usually given it would be ~16m or more (for comparison, sue the T. rex gets about 70cm shorter than fully stretched if it is in a normal pose).
For mass, my guess would be 12t+

This is not overly liberal but it is a different approach to the far too common reconstruction of an elongate, long-necked animal, contrary to what the remains indicate.

Thanks, and yes, if you want to call it that, it has one serious issue with its back!

Finally a realistic looking Spinosaurus!

But I prefer more feathers... :D

Understandable. By now quarter-yearly I'm thinking: Oh dear, another one that I now realise I should have given more plumage...

Und einen etwas weniger ge-shrink-wrapp-ten Kopf! :D

Hi theropod, I did a GDI analysis to IPHG 1912 and then I scaled it up to 15,6 m long and got 15,000+ kg.

It is actually about 30% heavier than I usually though, and a lot more similar to my first guess.

Thank's a lot for telling me! That sounds very interesting.

What images did you use for it?

I used Hartmans IPHG 1912 and then scaled it up to 15,6 m, I did the same for Suchomimus and I got 3,970 kg so I guess It can be accurate :)

Testing it with Cristatusaurus is a good idea. But how did you make the slices (what did you do with the neural spines?), and what dorsal view did you use?
