And here it is, the result of 3 years of research, drawing and a lot of overworks etc. The Tyrannosaur project is finished, well at least the size chart, a family tree will follow and maybe some other stuff , I might ven work on this one as well for a l,ittle bit, maybe including a map where teh specific genera were found or sth like that, or maybe a time line .
Well anyways, this size chart represents all members of tyrannosauroidea . Certain genera like the tooth taxons aublysodon, deinodon etc are not represented here since they are way too dubious and there is no way of differing them from other tyrannosaurs just by teeth. Other unsure placements include the family coeluridae since it isnt hundred percent sure if they belong to this superfamily and nanotyrannus and raptorex since they might represent just juveniles of t rex and tarbosaurus respectively. However since it isnt sure I decided to include them here. The animals with uncertain placement are marked with a "?". The Megaraptorans are also excluded here since their status is way too uncertain, should new studies however indicate they are tyrannosaurs, I will surely draw all of em as well to fit in the chart. I tried to represent every animal as accurate as possible but some small flaws might exist on the first pics I drew for the project, like in daspletosaurus you can see th antorbital fenestra a bit too clearly. I will try to correct these small imperfections over time, carefully optimizing and updating the size chart to include new studies and of course new genera . So actually this project never ends, it will constantly get updated.
Special thanks go out to Dr. Thomas Holtz, who always was willing to read and answer my questions.
