Spinosauridae size chart. From the largest to the smallest: Spinosaurus, Oxalaia, Suchomimus, Baryonyx, Ichthyovenator and Irritator. Remake of this: [link]

It's a good drawing, but I find the Spinosaurus too large. 17 meters long and 7 meters tall(at the head) is probably the most accurate size estimation.

PS- It's not such a good idea to say Spinosaurus is the biggest terrestrial carnivore. It's the longest by far, but not nearly as robust as say, Tyrannosaurus. There's a chance that T-rex outweighed Spinosaurus and would therefore be considered larger. It's hard to say though.

I know, I have to fix the proportions of Spinosaurus and Oxalaia (it is too tall, too). The Spino already have about 17 m, but I would reduce it a bit more. 7 m at head I consider too much, it's even more than what's shown in the chart.

I'm not sure if a Tyrannosaurus would weight more (or a lot more, at least) than a Spinosaurus. It wasn't as robust, but considerably longer, and there are the extra weight of the spines to calculate. And the lenght is often considered first, so I still feel safe in considering Spinosaurus the largest theropod, or considering Giganotosaurus larger than T. rex, e.g.

Everyone has their opinons. In the end, we may never really know.

The Spinosaurus here looks too big. Does the tail have the right length? It looks short and maybe when making the Spino 18 meters long the body got extra size. At least when looking at its head it seems to be over 2 meters, when paleontologists estimate the skull size at most 1.75 meters.

Nice drawing, though!

I know, that's just like you said, the short tail oversizes the body and head. Futurely (but not soon) I will update at least Spinosaurus and Oxalaia, fixing the proportions. Oh, and thanks :)

I heard it was the largest meat eater to ever exist... but how could that be when Megalodon was the largest to exist since it was 2x the size of the largest of whales...

Spinosaurus was the largest land predator. Also, megalodon was 2x larger than Spino, but just some meters. By the way, megalodon wasn't the larger aquatic predator of all time, as various whales surpass the shark.
