Battle of the Killer Giants

This weekend saw Everything Dinosaur team members delivering a series of family themed dinosaur presentations at Liverpool World Museum.  One of the prehistoric animal topics covered was an update on the research and study into the spinosaurids.  Was for example, Spinosaurus aegyptiacus the biggest theropod known to science, indeed the biggest terrestrial carnivore known in the fossil record?

Tyrannosaurus rex and Spinosaurus

The audience are invited to make up their own minds, if an imaginary battle took place between a Tyrannosaurus and a Spinosaurus.  We collated all the votes from the many hundreds of visitors who took part in our workshops, the results from this weekend’s activities are summarised below:

The audience votes were quite close but when all the information was compiled 54% of the theatre goers who voted thought that T. rex would win in  a fight with Spinosaurus compared to 46% who thought that Spinosaurus would come out on top.
