Ceratosaurus nasicornis isn't that robust, it is but not a lot. Utahraptor ostrommaysorum also has a very strong bite, considering a paper says Deinonychus antirrhopus had a bite about as strong as an American Alligator's bite. Both are around the same size as well, the dromaeosaurid is ~500-600kg (and possibly 700kg), while Ceratosaurus nasicornis is probably not much larger than that.

Yeah, I told you about that today. Many immature dinosaur specimens are kind of "gracile versions" of their adult specimens, and Ceratosaurus dentisulcatus is pretty robust when compared to the smaller species within its genus, C. nasicornis.

It seems very likely that Ceratosaurus nasicornis was a juvenile synonym of Ceratosaurus dentisulcatus, since they have fairly similar anatomy apart from the fact that C. dentisulcatus is substantially more bulky.
Hatzegopteryx: That's not even the beginning, the whole forum is disturbingly lethargic.

Spinosaurus Maroccanus: I'm quite surprised how no one has touched the Argentina 97ma thread

Hatzegopteryx: This forum needs some serious attention; I'll be at it for a moment, unless I get other tasks that do not allow me to do so.

Hatzegopteryx: It's a genetic fallacy. It's basically an argument that intends to discredit the opponent's position by asserting the opponent's failure to act consistently in accordance with that position.
