Thunder Lizard size comparison by ScottHartman Thunder Lizard size comparison by ScottHartman
Does what it says on the bottle. I did a write up on some details on my Facebook page here: [link]

I assume there will be lots of questions about scaling and which specimens I've used, so I'll see you in the comments section below.

Update: Added a gray silhouette of the mexican Alamosaurus specimen, and changed some of the scale people for more variety.

Cool comparison. But why is your Brachiosaurus taller than the Giraffatitan as my understanding is that Giraffatitan is taller based on Paleo-king's reconstructions. Cool work when are you going to put up Guanlong reconstruction looking forward to it.

You'd have to ask him that. Anyhow, they're essentially identical in height - Giraffatitan has a more upright back, but its torso is longer. Brachiosaurus seems to have a back that is less upright, but it's torso is longer and the shoulder blades are longer. Either one could be made "taller" by craning the neck up more at the base, but I pose mine close to a neutral pose (I say "close" because in these taxa there isn't good enough data to establish the exact ONP, so I base it on their closest relatives that I can).

Nice but in the facebook you wrote Argentinosaurus is a little bit smaller than Puertasaurus, but I'm think it is a little bit larger, because the maximum size of Argentinosaurus is 35 m, while Puertasaurus is 30 m.

My point is that I don't believe any estimate for Argentinosaurus until I restore it, and from my initial workup it doesn't look like it will be that large - length estimates from the web (and even peer-reviewed papers) are notoriously bad. But we'll see (if it gets chosen).
