Hi theropod1, you may or may not remember me from World of Animals. I'd like to tell you that I have learned a ton of things since I was there, and consequently know a heck of a lot more regarding just about everything than I knew back on there.

If it is not an issue, I'd like to know what you think of my updated large theropod estimates (Carcharodontosaurus, Giganotosaurus, Giganotosaurus roseae, T. rex), since that is also one of your areas of expertise and since we have talked about that topic in the past. Should you be interested I have links to them all.

Still interested?

Thanks a lot for the watch! I really do appreciate it :D

And thanks for the faves on =)

You’re very welcome, they were very well-deserved!

Are you from Carnivora
This may be quite a really, really stupid question, but I've been wondering about it.

Let's say a cat or bear grappled onto the neck of an equal-sized predatory theropod (of what clade (carnosaurs, tyrannosaurids, megalosaurids, etc.) you decide). Would the latter's cervical flexibility and cranial flexibility from the atlas be sufficient for it to turn its head/neck to the side and bite down on the carnivoran's forelimb (theropod necks were particularly flexible, right?)? Would some with powerful necks have the power and flexibility to free themselves through vigorous shaking?

I'm so sorry. Spending >4 years debating on animal vs. animal forums can make you think a little hard about this stuff.
