    It's really weird to see this bias, people acting like mammals are invincible and dinosaurs were made of cardboard.

    Trick question. They wouldn't fight. They would go on a date then kiss them after a few more dates, dilophosaurus would wanna fugg then they'd fugg then bison would lay his eggs and this abomination unto the Lord and nature would live happily ever after the end.
    At least until a better clooc comes along.

      Modern mammals are superior. That's how evolution works kiddo, if that therapunk were so great then why is it dead?

          to be fair it was a pretty big rock that destroyed 90% of the species on the planet, mammals dont even need that to get wiped out

      It's only because you predator obsessed tards don't understand that predatory animals don't do well in head on fights where both parties know the other is there. Tigers in India can take down shit as big as the one horned rhino, but that's only because they get the drop on them.

      Theropod fanboys like you are easily the worst in this regard where you say shit like a dromeosaur could actually kill a fricking hadrosaur because of PACK HUNTIN! Get real you fricking moron kek.

        What are you talking about? Deinonychus have been found with tenontosaurus remains several times which implies that they preyed on them to some extent, and this is very well known. Did you mean to say sauropod instead or something? You can't be this stupid.

      It's over correction, because herbivores are commonly portrayed as helpless we need to now make them unbeatable with 100/0 matchups against any carnivore

    A real dilophosaurus would probably not even try it since it was built to hunt things smaller than itself
    However The Isle dilophosaurus is satan incarnate and would easily merk it

    I think it's actually a closer match than it looks like at first. if it came from behind, it could have attacked the bison's anus like lions do, and in the process ripped out its innards, dooming the bison to die. I'm pretty sure dilophosaurus hunted decently large herbivores at the time. obviously not proper sauropods, but still.

      There's no way 800lbs is accurate to that size

        Bipedalism means that animals cannot get very heavy despite being tall, look at ostriches for instance which are even taller and lighter (300 lbs) because they don't even have a large fleshy tail to act as weight distribution.

          Yeah but only slightly larger dinosaurs like Carnotaurus are estimated as over a ton, no fricking way Dilophosaurus was only 800lbs

            Abelisaurids had very robust bones that were good for supporting a more massive frame with a larger bulk.

            In comparison, dilophosaurus had a fairly thin skeleton and was most likely pretty light and frail despite being the early jurassic's premier north american apex predator.

            Height and length do not necessarily mean larger, as mass is by far the biggest indicator of size, this is why animals like geese are complete pushovers if you get past their intimidating facade, they're very light and only appear big because of their height due to bipedalism.

              Didin't they do a study some years ago just to prove that it WASN'T a frail lanklet with glass bones like how they originally envisioned it?

                I'm pretty sure you're thinking of the bite force which was originally thought to be really weak because of the notch in its upper jaw or something or other about the skull, it's frame is known and it was not a very bulky animal and you can look at its relatives dracovenator and cryolophosaurus which are all a similar weight to corroborate this.

                My main point here though, is that even if we go with the suprise attack from behind lion hunting strat that

                I think it's actually a closer match than it looks like at first. if it came from behind, it could have attacked the bison's anus like lions do, and in the process ripped out its innards, dooming the bison to die. I'm pretty sure dilophosaurus hunted decently large herbivores at the time. obviously not proper sauropods, but still.

                is talking about (and ignore the fact that lions hunt in packs but whatever) then we still can't really claim dilophosaurus would have any feasible chance of killing a fully grown bull bison that's more than twice its weight, has a heavy coat of fur its teeth wouldn't be accustomed to biting through, and couldn't even open it's mouth wide enough to get a good grip on the cows vitals in the first place.

                Hell, all the animals in early jurassic north america that it hunted were a lot smaller than it was, so it's not like you could even make the argument that it had experience fighting things larger than itself like a tiger does, which even then, no large predatory animal that I know of can even dream of taking down a healthy animal twice its size solo.

                Buffalo stomps 10-0 and its not even close.

                tigers can take on moose, and theyre twice the size of tigers, moose are generally a lot worse than bison, and smilodons, a similar size predator to tigers, took on the larger bison of that era, also they wouldnt take on a bull, nobody does that
                we also dont know the max size of them, with the largest being ~880 lb about 6 ft at the hip, we are extremely lucky to have even found one that was as fricked up as the holotype, its just as unlikely to find the maximum size

                How are you gonna say "they wouldn't take on a bull"? Of course they wouldn't, but this is supposed to be a battle and it wouldn't be fair to pit a max size predator against a smaller or sickly herbivore.

                Also, siberian tigers can take on ussuri elk, which are a subspecies of moose that are quite smaller than their alaskan counterparts and only top out at around 800 pounds. This is while the tigers themselves are a bit over 500 pounds on average, not to mention the tigers are certainly not going after the fully grown 800 pounders since that's not how predators work. Also smilodon populator almost certainly lived in prides due to the fact that bones were found with grievous injuries that managed to heal completely. Not to mention they could have potentially weighed almost 1000 pounds, so that point isn't too convincing.

                That's also the thing about paleontology, you gotta work with the information you have and roll with it, I'm willing to admit that there are probably dilos that got bigger than 800 pounds, but they would not have weighed an absurd amount more as the fossils already discovered are of fully grown specimens. Let's even say that an outlier was found that weighed 1,200 pounds, even so, the largest bison on record weighed over 3000.

                No matter what way you slice it, the dilo just can't win this. Predators in general don't do too well in fight scenarios like this since a predator relies on hunting things it knows it can kill without a hitch, do they aren't used to direct confrontation with things bigger than them most of the time.

        I am a super dilo simp but there is no contest that the dilo wouldn't win that fight. I don't think there was a predator at the time (Early triassic) who could even dent one? Didn't really get a proper big boy til the jurassic when sauropods started bulking out.

        >The largest known specimen weighed about 400 kilograms (880 lb), measured about 7 meters (23 ft) in length, and its skull was 590 millimeters (23+1⁄4 in) long. The smaller holotype specimen weighed about 283 kilograms (624 lb), was 6.03 meters (19 ft 9+1⁄2 in) long, with a hip height of about 1.36 meters (4 ft 5+1⁄2 in), and its skull was 523 millimeters (1 ft 8+1⁄2 in) long.
        According to wikipedia, anyway. Yeah its wild to me that its considered a small theropod, especially seeing the life size models in person.
