Giganotosaurus was a massive carnivorous theropod that lived around 110 to 95 million years ago during the middle Cretaceous period.

Its skull contained huge 200mm (8in) long serrated teeth that it used for attacking and eating massive vegetarian Sauropods.

Since i was a little kid i always loved dinosaurs, and now i can do my dream, make a Dinopedia. Starting with my favourite one, this huge bastard from South America, the Giganotosaurus. I use a little bit the colors from the game DINO CRISIS 2.

Awesome, just one thing, T-Rex was taller in height, and I never knew Giganotosaurus was 14 metres. Anyways, have a nice day.

Giganotosaurus at 14 meters is feasible, but not certain.
