    It says only slightly bigger than a T-Rex. And considering the fact that T-Rex was an American means it is still the coolest.:D :D :D 

    That still really cool though, I've never gotten sick of hearing about dinosaurs. I keep secretly hoping they'll find a dinosaur as big as the Calvinosaurus.

    Er, what's a Calvinosaurus? Was there really such a dinosaur? Anyway, despite finding newer and bigger species of meat-eating dinosaurs, I guess the T-Rex will forever hold a special place in most dino-lovers! ;)

    It's from Calvin and Hobbes. And this story makes me want to watch Jurrasic Park.

    And it hunted in packs? This dinosaur is made of badass!


    ...But T-Rex is still the dinosaur poster boy.

    It would have been badass if it didn't have such a goofy name.:tongue: 

    Still hoping they'll find a carnivore that's as large as the Giganotosaurus from Dino Crisis 2 (that thing's size made me laugh harder then the blown up JP Raptors).

    Interesting... somehow, if there was a fourth Jurassic Park movie, maybe this dino would be the star predator... but that's just me thinking.

    Why not, the last movie they wanted something"Bigger and more bad ass then a T-Rex." They said in the commentarty... I don't see why they wouldn't go for this or Gigantosaurus...

    Hmm.. twisted part of me wants to see it go after Androtitan.. but I know Androtitan was in the north American area of the continet then and not in the southern america contient... still... lol

    I'd actually say it was my love of dinosaurs that got me interested into Transformers when Beast Wars came out and I saw that a few of them had dinosaur alt modes, since I was just a newborn when G1 was originally airing.

    Jurassic Park was the absolute coolest movie I had ever seen when it came out when I was 8.

    Third one is kind of disapointing because as it turns out, the script was never completed prior to them shooting.

    So upon talking to my brother, there is actual contention to the hype of them being a pack hunter...

    the found remains indicate that there was a bunch in one place, but seeing as there is adolescents there, but no eggs found and no babies, there's no proof that they were hunting in a pack, or that it was a nesting sight.
