What A Year, For Tyrannosaurs![edit]

Wow, is 2011 turning out to be a good year for tyrannosaurids, or what! Okay, so, first, there's Teratophoneus. And, now, there's Zhuchengtyrannus! Yep, tons, and I do mean tons of amazing dinosaurs have been discovered, in the year 2011. And, we're just barely started the month of April! Who knows what other incredible, prehistoric, creatures, will be unearthed, as this-very fascinating!-year, progresses! Mozzyepic24 (Talk) 18:00, 1 April, 2011. (UTC).

Image[edit]

It might be just me, but doesn't the new restoration have a snout like this inaccurate image and scales like the inaccurate image of Lythronax. Iainstein (talk) 20:57, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

It's not just you, the snout is way too long, reminds me of Alioramus... And the scales are too big, but that isn't visible unless you open the file in its full resolution. Rnnsh (talk) 21:24, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

Not only that. I think the lower arm should be longer (unless it is angled towards the viewer, but it does not seems to be). Compare with the restoration made by Brian Choo. Conty 19:11, 26 December 2013

Shrinking[edit]

Zhuchengtyrannus' 10-12m is no longer correct. It is now only 9m. For more about the only 9m Zhuchengtyrannus, ask Mike.BRZ (talk). I agree because most theropod legnths (and also sauropod) had shrank. For example, Giganotosaurus is only 13.2m, t.rex is only 12.3m and Seismosaurus only 33m.

I don't count as reliable source so until a paleontologist sees the correlation I saw (Zhuchengtyrannus bones being the same size as the adult Bistahieversor) and publishes that estimate in a book or scientific paper 10-12m will have to stay. Mike.BRZ (talk) 23:05, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
