Looks funny how he screams on this picture. But what a beast he is. Surely no pushover. You don't want to get hit by his frontlegs or his strong hindlegs. I've seen too many pictures where hadrosaurs look like weaklings and wimps.

This likely was made before the new estimate was established.

Huaxiaosaurus is synonymous with Shantungosaurus.

15m and 23 tons?
Tyrannosaurus was 12.8m long and 9 tons, so this animal would be around 11-13 tons

T-rex 9 tons?! Thats far to much 5-7 tons is more plausible. Also this is a plant eater with a huge gut and a massive tail. So the animal itself is far more massive.

New estimates of T-rex put it at 9-10.5 tons.

Wouldn't it be Magnapaulia laticauda, as the generic name changed from masculine to femenine?

Not necessarly. I copy this from a reply of Marjanovic in the Dinosaur Mailing list:
"which was wrong in the first place. You can't change the gender of a noun, and that's what "tail" is. The ICZN even spells out that species names which are "nouns in apposition" don't need to agree, and must not be made to agree, with the names of their genera."

yes it is truely a giant :)
But huaxiaosaurus was probably even bigger, it is estimated to be 18 metres long! However some suggest it is the same animal as shantungosaurus
