Disambiguation link notification[edit]

Hi. When you recently edited Kronosaurus, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Boyaca (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver).

Monster of Aramberri[edit]

Hello. When you said on the Talk:Monster of Aramberri page that "any currently know pliosaur exceeds 17 m" did you mean that any currently known pliosaur does exceed 17 m, or that no currently known pliosaur exceeds 17 m? Saruman IV (talk) 03:17, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

Okay, thank you for letting me know. I wouldn't be of much help, since my French is rather limited. It sounds like you know what you're doing. Saruman IV (talk) 15:13, 30 January 2012 (UTC)

Hey[edit]

I'm confused why my edit of why the tyrannosaurus specimen "sue" keeps getting undone when she weighs up to 9 tons minimum. I have many plausible and reliable resources. If it's a citing problem please help me with that because i'm unsure how they do it on wikipedia.

T-rex edit[edit]

That's exactly what I did. I cited the source and i put the exact information from that article into the t-rex article. Also they just changed the largest specimen (sue) length back to 40 when the museum which holds sue confirmed that she is 42 feet long.

Hey[edit]

I believe i know where i went wrong. I entered my new reference but i never deleted the reference that said that sue weighed 7.5 tons so maybe thats why people think that i'm changing the reference. If you could change the weight and the length of sue where it should be at which are 9 tons and 42 feet in length in would be greatly appreciated. Source which states sue's length: https://www.fieldmuseum.org/happening/exhibits/sue-t-rex Sources for sues weight: http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/tyrannosaurus-rex-weighed-tons-estimate/story?id=14738660

Megalodon[edit]

Hi,

The 14-18 m TL figure for C. megalodon in the wiki article is not referred in the corresponding source nor in any published paper. I dont say it's not true, I say that it s not written in the scientific litterature at all. I suggest to use maximum size of 18 m (published in Pimiento 2013), not 14-18 m, which is not a piblished figure. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Over there (talkcontribs) 07:11, 10 November 2014 (UTC)


Hi, Well some corrections,

Pimiento 2010 precisely uses "more than 16 m" using as reference Gottfried et al. 1996.

Gottfried et al. 1996 have not estimated a 12 m figure but a conservative max size of 16 m, a max size of 17 m, and hypothetical maximum size of 20.2 m.

Pimiento's figure of 18 m in the 2014 paper is based on her 2013 paper where she collected additionnal C.megalodon specimens from the Gatun Formation, one being estimated at 17.9 m. Using Shimada's method, not Gottfried's.

Hence, I dont understand why the 14 m figure is used here since it does not exist as a precise figure in modern publication about C. megalodon.

It appears then, based on the latest publications that the modern consensus of maximum size is 18 m, not 14-18 m.

None of the modern published methods suggest a maximum size figure of 14 m, nor in litterature, nor while applying them on teeth specimens from private collection.

So parcimony and respect of the published litterature suggests to me to not use that not referenced 14 m figure. Rather the latest by Pimiento.

14 m simply does not exist in the littetature as published figure. And it was very certainly not the maximum size for C. megalodon. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Over there (talkcontribs) 01:23, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Homotherium venezuelensis[edit]

Hi! It's Gug 01. I noticed that you made many positive edits to the article Homotherium venezuelensis, which I created. I want to thank you for that. Also, in the reference to fossilworks there is information documented in a way I cannot understand. Could you please take that information from the reference and add it to the Wikipedia article? Please do so if you can. Gug01 (talk) 22:46, 29 December 2014 (UTC) Gug 01

I did see your edit in which you added some information from the Spanish version of the article, and I thank you a lot for that. I appreciate that edit. However, in the fossilwork reference, there is a large paragraph titled "Average measurements (in mm)". That's the information I originally wanted you to put in the article. Of course, that isn't to say I don't appreciate your edits a lot, and I want to thank you again. Gug01 (talk) 22:54, 29 December 2014 (UTC) Gug 01
Just posted my reply here too. I didn't change the time when I posted and I hope you don't mind if I post in multiple places. Gug01 (talk) 16:05, 30 December 2014 (UTC) Gug 01
True. You're right. So then let's just not incorporated information from the ref "fossilworks". Thanks again for your edits and your time on that article. Gug01 (talk) 14:01, 31 December 2014 (UTC) Gug 01
