Journal
Tyrannosaurus rex size.
Introduction:
As Chritopher Brochu once noted in his osteological study on Tyrannosaurus: "Nothing evokes prehistory more than Tyrannosaurus rex. Nearly any five-year-old in the industrialized world knows what it is, and to many, Tyrannosaurus is the quintessential predatory dinosaur-as Paul (1988:344) stated, "this is the theropod." It is the only nonavian dinosaur (and one of the few organisms) popularly known by the specific rather than generic name-"T. rex" is as common in the popular media as "Tyrannosaurus."
As well as:

“Tyrannosaurids are no more relevant to phylogenetics or comparative biology than any other group of organisms, but they are extremely popular. When we do science with Tyrannosaurus, we do it with a broader audience than if it were done with almost any other animal.”

Along with the biggest fame, come the greatest hyperboles, and the highest numbers of fanatics, as well as the most intense of them. However so do the most har

Large Theropods of the Jurassic
This chart is meant to represent most of the largest known theropods of the Jurassic (I didn't put like every species of Allosaurus and Torvosaurus, sorry).
Sorry, in this post I won't explain too much on how I got the estimates, perhaps I will in a journal.
Using specimen numbers is probably a good idea, but I might put it in the journal I was talking about.

I decided I am not very art so I'm just going to use skeletals and then flesh them out a bit to what I think looks nice.

A lot of these I have scaled myself and other (probably more intelligent) people have confirmed similar or same sizes with their scalings. However I did not attempt to scale Dandakosaurus yet, randomdinos did though and randomdinos is cool. But Dandakosaurus is highly speculative because we do not know its exact phylogenetic position so we don't know what the best base is. Here it is based on Sinosaurus.

Animals, From Left to Right:

Veterupristisaurus sp. (=V. milneri?) [Orange]
~ 5250 kilograms? (Using a hump half the mass of Acrocanthosaurus... there's no reason to but I just did this to be safe)
~ 11.2 meters long
~ Ahh too lazy to do hip height

"Saurophaganax" maximus (=Allosaurus?) [Red]
~ 4200 kilograms
~ 11 meters long

Allosaurus fragilis (I think it's fragilis?) [Purple]
~ 3900 kilograms
~ 10.8 meters long

Dandakosaurus indicus [Tan]
~ 2450 kilograms?
~ 10.53 meters long?

Yangchuanosaurus shangyouensis
[Dark Blue]
~ 2500-3000 kilograms??
~ 10.2 meters

"Edmarka" rex (=Torvosaurus tanneri) [Yellow]
~ 3100-3300 kilograms?
~ 10.5 meters long

Torvosaurus tanneri [Sky Blue]
~ 2815 kilograms
~ 10.2 meters long

Subadult Veterupristisaurus milneri [Green-Blue]
~ 2135 kilograms
~ 8.3 meters long

Subadult Allosaurus sp./fragilis? [Brown]
~ 1970 kilograms
~ 8.57 meters long

Subadult Torvosaurus tanneri (hmm, maybe gurneyi?) [Pink]
~ 1600 kilograms
~ 8.45 meters long


SKELETALS:

I used the Acrocanthosaurus and Torvosaurus (tanneri) skeletals made by :iconscotthartman:
I used the Dandakosaurus and Allosaurus skeletals made by :iconrandomdinos: I'm pretty sure the Allosaurus skeletal he made was adapted from :iconscotthartman: though, and I'm not entirely sure what he based the Sinosaurus off of.
I used the Yangchuanosaurus skeletal made by :iconspinoinwonderland:

Monolophosaurus
Okay, uh, all sils and charts before this one are not "canon" anymore xD
The Veterupristisaurus Cinematic Universe (VCU) is dropping those and starting a new line of better looking sils and chart set ups.
Unless they look worse now, then crap. Here's the info:
Total Length: ≈ 6.18 meters
Hip Height: ≈ 1.59 meters
Skull Length: ≈ 67 centimeters
Weight: ≈ 475 Kilograms according to Gregory S. Paul's 'The Princeton Field Guide to Dinosaurs'

Anatomical Reference(s):
:iconscotthartman: I used his skeletal to make the base shape of the silhouette, and although I tweaked it a bit it's pretty much still his.
Research Help:
:iconrandomdinos: He helped me find the correct skull length of Monolophosaurus, and... that's about it. But that actually helped me a lot still.
Color Suggestion:
:iconfranoys: and :iconrandomdinos: said they wanted it to be green, and :iconfranoys: suggested a blue crest. So yay.
Measurements:
Original measurements, except weight is from The Princeton Field Guide to Dinosaurs and the skull length was referred to me by :iconrandomdinos:

Oh and also the human in this is pretty short.

Euhelopus Is Invincible
Good news, we released an angry and hungry Euhelopus to kill all the dolphin snakes.
Bad news, it's here to kill us now. It's also invincible. Stay in your homes but there's not much you can do, you're still pretty screwed.
Euhelopus can not be stopped.
Euhelopus can never be stopped.

Credits (In order of appearance)
Original Image; Paleop
Sword Through Neck; Me
Flesh Wound; Paleop
Sword, Dagger, Gun; Me
Nedry Euhelopus; Paleop
Euhelopus Revenge; Me

Yeah, I know it's not like an actual new size chart or something but... enjoy. Well, at least enjoy until Euhelopus finds you. Then be afraid.
Also if you think this should be tagged mature please tell me so I can fix it right away.

Dolphin Snake
This is a real crisis, people, and it could be affecting your family.
Dolphin snakes are roaming rampant throughout Canada, The United States, and parts of Mexico. Reported sightings in Cuba are unconfirmed but very likely true. Dolphin snakes pose a threat to our entire way of life: Our jobs, our culture, our families, and the ecosystems of our planet. If you really want to stop dolphin snakes, there is only one way how. If you don't help us, we are all doomed. The way to beat dolphin snakes is... radio static

Hey guys! Today we have another downsized animal! Yay!!!... :(  Cryptoclidus eurymerus has been stated from sizes anywhere from 4-8 meters (what the hell is up with 8...) but it has a tiny skull, only about 25.3 centimeters long, and the total body length using the curves yields approximately 3.3 meters. I almost feel like you could have these things as pets. Here's the more precise measurements thingy:

Cryptoclidus eurymerus: Approx. 3.27 meters

Enjoy! Seriously though, I like the nickname I came up with for it... maybe too much...

Very short, but I adopted a better method for measuring the size of the animals. Now I will "measure along the curves," which probably has a more technical word but I wouldn't know it. The estimates on the Three Tyrants chart have been updated and all future charts will use this method. The method actually provides me with one, much more exact size. However, I doubt I can actually measure them with this precise accuracy, so these measurements will still be approximations, but more precise than before. This means we can more clearly see what animal is bigger than what (at least length wise).

In other news, smaller chart (and animal) coming coon... Like literally right after this is posted.
