Decent size enough comparison of seven of the largest theropods - notice after all the media hype over the past few decades about the various contenders that actually rexy is still by far the heaviest (and that is a conservative weight estimate). :canny:

Very slow and heavy.
It's the second one this week and at this time of the night!
It's really cold too.
I presume it must be a queen looking for some where to sleep the winter away.
No fight in it at all.


Hope you let it live?

I am always getting these cheeky types of wasp flying about - the cheeky fuckers. :shake head:

Wife catches them and chucks them back out.
Surviving out there in the cold aint going to be easy I wouldn't have thought.


But at least they have a chance to find somewhere else. :thumbsup:

Pics are of the Japanese Giant Hornet and Megascolia procer by the way - two of the largest wasp species in the world - along with the Tarantula Hawks (Pepsis sp).

Night. :smilin:

Five reasons why Sleeper sharks are so interesting (a possible lifespan of 700 years for the maximum sized specimens for a start FFS)! :kinell:

My favourite sequence of The Deep episode was the seven gigantic Sixgill sharks eating the carcass of the Sperm whale. :cuppaT:

My favourite animal?

The remarkable Barreleye - with it's huge upward looking green eyes and transparent jelly filled skull that enable it to do so. :smilin:

The eyes on those sharks were really creepy though. :ooer:

That is one weird looking fish you posted a pic of there. :gigglesnshit: Pretty unique adaptation.

Fascinating how life finds a way in the most harsh of environments. Bottom of the ocean, extreme cold, and near underwater volcano vents. :more beer:


Indeed - although not as surprising as someone else actually posting on this bloody thread! :laughing:

People may talk. :leer:

Oh, get over your pathetic self!

Keyser_Soze1 is a fictional character on the film, The Usual Suspects - but of course you know that!

Not that pathetic, he changed it. :gigglesnshit:

He changed his avatar and name as soon as the accusations came out.

Changing his avatar, etc, proves that he's willing to be subjective about the whole sorry mess.

Like millions of other people, he had no idea about the accusations surrounding Spacey before this hit the media a few days ago.


Thanks. :Hiya:

They knew that Charlie of course it was just a pitiful troll attempt to ruin the thread. :shake head:
