Saurophaganax, theeater of saurians.

Saurophaganax, theeater of saurians is a genus represented by a single species of theropod dinosaur alos√°urido: Saurophaganax maximus.

This was a predator who was at the top of the food chain of the time. A hunter considered the gender of the Allosaurus, which rivaled the east by the Jurassic reservoirs superior.De titanic fact, Saurophaganax maximus, was greater than any Allosaurus... as a Zhuchengtyrannus. Could grow to 11 meters long (36 ft), 3.5 tons, and nearly 4 meters (17 ft) high ... But some paleontologists experts who have researched their fossils suggest that it could reach up to 15 meters (50 ft)long and nearly 6 tons (as T. Rex) y. .. apart from these data that can help us imagine a similar beast, S. maximus shared a characteristic of other species of Allosaurus: speed. Could grow to more than 10 km / h; nothing compared to a Formula One car but far more titanic than animals that were part of their diet as the Apatosaurus.

If it was a Allosurus or not is not known, but is increasingly more confident that it is not, what we do know the Saurophaganax maximus is: if it looked like the Allosaurus, the bite would be so terrible as these predators ... not good .... even more powerful and effective because it is a large species 3 meters (12 ft) and two tons heavier. We could say that if the Allosaurus was a bull shark, S. maximus would be a great white shark.


The main feature is its maximus Saurophaganax horizontal plate at the base of the dorsal neural spine, this gives a look similar to the typical fantastic dragons have a series of chevrons along the body.

Madtsoia bai

Imagine dragging 3.000 lb of muscle stealthily lurking in the swamps and the darkness of the jungle. A being with a cold stare that shakes because it reflects the very death. I'm talking about THE WORLD'S LARGEST SNAKE AND THE STORY ... And prehistory.

The Madtsoia bai or as it is commonly known "the grandmother of Cow Canyon" is a species of the genus madtsoia and is possibly the largest snake ever found and even bigger than Titanoboa.

In 1931, evolutionary paleontologist George Gaylord Simpson found the fossilized skeleton of a snake in the town of Cow Canyon, located in the southeast of the province of Chubut (Argentina).
This prehistoric animal was a snake constrictor, meaning they hunted their prey by strangulation, not poison, squeezing and squeezing its prey more and more each time the prey exhales the snake tightened until the victim can not recover this vital air and dies by suffocation.

The estimated sizes for this giant snake is between 50 and 65 feets, diameter 2 feets and weighing up to 1.5 tons. For example, the current Anaconda fails, almost never, 8 meters, 35 cm in diameter and 450 lb ... and is the largest in the world.

On the other hand, imagine the animals would be able to swallow this thing of prehistory. If you lived in Argentina Patagonia 90 million years ago and has been extinct for 2 (or so they say), bony part of the Cretaceous and Pleistocene, could engulf prey as Abelisaurus terrible, a great Toxodon or even one of the first cats that Smilodon drinking approached carelessly.

15 m years ago began a process of cooling and desertification of Patagonia, which was gradually shaping the current face of the region as well as climatic and environmental conditions that we know at present.

The giant snakes do not support these changes and became extinct, or in some cases, retreated northward, giving rise to the current species of large snakes.

Allosaurus fragilis.

When I wrote the post of Allosaurus Europeaus, also promised to write about the Allosaurus fragilis, the best-known species whose fossilized bones have more information to the expert paleontologists.


But not only important for the amount of fossil fuels. Anyone who has heard or knows anything about the dinosaur Allosaurus know that this was a T. Rex of his time. It was a prehistoric monster that was in the top of the food chain, a predator with a bite capable of prey animals as large as Stegosaurus and Diplodocus.







Fortunately for the Allosaurus did not have to deal with T.rex (who lived 80 million years later), the Spinosaurus (30 million years later) or Giganotosaurus (60 million years ago). Possibly the only species of dinosaur that could stand up was Saurophaganax that like Allosaurus lived for about 150 million years in the late Jurassic.

Their physical characteristics are:

Length: Nearly 30 feets long.
Height: 13 feets.
Weight: 6000 lb.

(T.rex- 43 for long., 18 tall and nearly 13.000 lb)

Although smaller than T. rex, Allosaurus's body was much the same way, the only notable difference was that his front arms were compared with the body, stronger and longer.

Another feature is that the Allosaurus (some experts believe) reached high speeds ... of course for these sizes of dinosaurs. Reached speeds of up to 6,2 mill / h and this speed could reach any of stalking and its victims.

Once the victim came to them with a bite attack stubborn 70-curved teeth inward dams prevented their escape, lest they (the prisoners) do without the piece of meat that was trapped in its jaws Allosaurus.
