You may have heard claims of 18, 19, 20 meter Spinosaurus, hell, I've heard them as high as 25 meters. Personally, I find the idea of an 82 foot Spino a bit ridiculous.
I will split this critcism of these claims up into several sections.
I often hear claims from fanboys of 20+ tonne weights for Spinos around the 20 meter range. Estimates larger would likely approach the 30 tonne range.
Let's use Giraffatitan as a means of criticism.
The main criticism here is that Giraffatitan would only be slightly heavier than Spinosaurus (partially due to weight-reducing air-sacs found in most sauropods, but no theropod as far as I know has been found with similar sacs), and yet, Giraffatitan was a pillar-legged quadruped, whilst Spinosaurus had relatively thin le…

I've actually managed to get in contact with some people who are helping me make a mod for the game. However, because they are busy right now, that gives me some time to take suggestions, if anyone wants to give them to me.Read more >
The Spino has recently been super-buffed.
It now loses only 4 stamina a second instead of 5
Its damage has been increased from 550 to 860
It now does bleed (I don't know exactly how much yet).
It does seem to have a slightly slower bite, but this really doesn't compensate for everything else.
This pretty much points to the Spino now being the super predator of the island. Being able to easily face tank a Rex now, it seems to be the ultimate predator. The Rex does still have somewhat absurd healing and leg break though (to my knowledge), so the strategy would be to break a Spino's leg, and run away or slowly wear it down over time (as Rexes did before).
At least it's still the slowest apex.Read more >
So, I felt measuring the volume of some of the dinosaur's torso's, to see what they should realistically have has health. These would be slightly lower in the actual game, since I didn't bother accounting for the sloping shape of each creatures torso, this would have the greatest effect on the Shant, but even that wouldn't be lowered all that significantly.
Why the torso? Why not the whole body? Well for one, it's easier to calculate, but primarily, it's because that's where almost all of the vital organs are (except the brain). It wouldn't matter how intact your tail is if your body has been blown up.
Now, these are in cubic millimeters based off of my monitor. Your results may vary, but the proportions matter more so.
Shant: 35,695 …Read more >
I'm going to be adding size-comparison screenshots for all dinosaurs (with humans) to each page.
If I accidentally left the UI on for any photo, just tell me.Read more >
I have been resently adding some old images of former official skins before they were removed. The reason Ive been adding these old images is to show people some of the old skins from the good old days of sandbox and having war on other people as certain dinosaurs. I wish some of these skins come back. My favorite was the Grassland TSL T.rex skin, it was so beautiful and majestic in my opinion. Sadly I dont think these skins will come back anytime in the future but through the power of mods, I hope they will.Read more >
In previous years, Sue's weight was estimated at about 8-10 tonnes (8.8-11 tons), however, a new study says otherwise.
Using computer models that ranged from "too skinny, too fat, or too disproportionate," the study found range for Sue's weight that may have been anywhere from 9.5 tonnes to 18.5 tonnes (10.5-20.5 tons). The most likely estimate has been set at 13.99 tonnes, basically 14 tonnes (15.4 tons). Does this mean all dinosaurs were heavier than previously thought? Perhaps, but since very few similar studies have been carried out, it's up to debate for now.Read more >

Before anyone asks, yes, I did get a lot of my information from a YouTube channel called Trey the Explainer.
That aside, as his video is called, "did T. rex have feathers?" As he once again said: "short answer: Yes!"
Now I'm done with direct quotes.
Anyhoo, before anybody says this, ja, we have found skin impressions from T. rex with scales on them, but, they are from sections where almost all dinos had scales, so that proves nothing. You might say "it was to big!" No, no it was not. You might say "it couldn't have had feathers, its environment was to hot!" No, its environment was not to hot, it had a mild to somewhat cold temperature year round, even in summer. You might say "only babaes had da feathers!" Maybe, actually, that may be correct…Read more >
The weight system has been remastered completely, instead of rigid weight classes, each dinosaur has a unique weight to it.
I'll edit the pages when I get a chance to.
Anyways, the maximum weights.
The weight system affects damage by dividing the Attacker weight by the victim weight. For example, a Shant is approximately 30% heavier than a Spino, so an attack will do 30% extra damage (I think). So a regular stomp would do 1,105 damage to a Spino, a headbutt woul…

So... I was doodling on some graph paper (which obviously isn't the best evidence, but that's not the point), and I drew up Huaxiaosaurus, which is really just an old Shantungosaurus, as all differences between the two genera are only aging related. Now, it's supposed to be 11.3 meters tall in a tripodal pose, and 18.7 meters long, so when I finished the doodling, it was somewhere around 18-19 meters in the tripodal pose. So that got me thinking, "is 18.7 meters the tripodal length, or the normal length?" Anyways, I measured out the doodled up version, and it came out at about 21-22 meters long. Am I going to wave this around going "Lol Shants are teh biggest dino evre lol." and claiming that something made an error, as Amphicoelias fanbo…Read more >
There has been some official Isle dossiers released which can be seen here. http://imgur.com/a/Ma401 Becuase of that, i'm making a proposal that we base our information off them, including the dino's sizes as well as what they are like in the isle, which of course means that we might have to drastically change some of the info on our pages. I'm also thinking about making it so that you could view the dossiers in the infoboxes once I get the hang of the coding that is required to do so. I think this would be really helpful so that our wiki would be more reliable for information. I would like to see some of your opinions as well.Read more >
This isn't really an important nor informative blog, but I still wanted to make this. Perhaps once modding becomes a thing, I'll change the stats to how I see fit.
Anyways, I'm only going to point out the stats I want changed, to keep this from getting excessively long. I'll go (current)-(what I want).
Damage- 1,600 + 30% max health of target (percent scales with weight)
Length- 12.8 meters - 12.3
PP cost- 480
PP cost- 180
Note: Slight speed buff
Stamina- 250-135 (They were moreso sprinters than long-distance runners)
PP cost- 240
Note: slight speed buff

Hey guys! just wanted to hear feed back on the website! The Isle Forum
It has emoji's,reputation system,future rank titles, and much much more.

Hey, guess what! I finally took five minutes out of my life to find out how big this guy was accounting for the fact that larger creatures require proportionately larger feet to support themselves! Scaling from the largest footprints, 1.7 meters, it's about 41 meters... with its neck vertical. By comparison, Puertasaurus was about 27. I can see this guy weighing at least 200 tonnes (220 tons). The average Blue Whale is about 135 (150 tons). But, since that is scaling from the largest footprints, it seems fair to compare it to the largest Blue Whale, 173 tonnes (191 tons), though about 6% of the body mass was lost due to blood loss (Blue Whales are so big, they can't be weighed in one chunk). Still, Broomey was bigger, at least by 27 tonnes (3…Read more >
Apparently, i found this wiki that this guy just made. I came over to him and said we already have this wiki, and even insisted that he comes over to us to help us out.

Kelmayisaurus gigantus is based on a single vertebrae that is believed to have probably been from a sauropod. However, if it truly did come from a theropod, specifically a Carcharadontosaurid, it is estimated at 22 meters long (72 feet)! By comparison, T. rex measured about 12 meters (39 feet) on average. I'm not even going to try to make any definitive weight estimates, though 25+ tonnes (28+ tons) doesn't seem entirely implausible (for its length). Its height would have been about 6 meters (20 feet) at the hips. It would have essentially been the real-life equivalent of ARK's version of Giganotosaurus.Read more >

This is a blog post that i felt like creating. There have been some bad reviews about the game, mostly about stuff like balancing, toxic community, bad dev behavior etc. I want to know your opinion about these bad reviews and what you agree/disagree with. In my opinion, i think they are overreacting about the game, mostly because it's early access and that not everything about the game is perfect. As dev behavior, i don't think bad behavior will reflect the quality of a game. For example, the devs could treat their community very nicely, but give out a very bad game. (I'm looking at you ark). But very mean devs that you definitely wouldn't want out hang out with might deliver a very good game. See what i mean? Plus, i think the dev's behav…Read more >
Unfortunately, my schedule is very busy for the time being; however, I wanted to at least show a preview of one thing I have an idea for.
So, basically, I wanted to know how much damage a Stegosaurus tail could inflict. So, since I don't really have time right now, I'll just assume the tail weighs 1,000 kg. Let's just say bone makes up 20% of the volume, so that would be 800 kg of muscle. Now, I found an article saying 1 kg of muscle can produce 10 newtons of force. Simple math would tell us, then, that a stego tail can produce 8,000 newtons. Of course, that's how much force it can produce, not necessarily how much is inflicted. But, I don't have time, so I'll just leave it at "1 meter spikes being driven by 8,000 newtons would hurt." For the…Read more >
So, not gonna lie, this isn't what I planned on doing today, but, here I am.
So, the Broome Titanosaur. As I mentioned in RDS 2, it would not weigh 800 tonnes, or even 500 tonnes, even at 80 meters long. If you want an explanation for this, go read that post. Anyways, this image is based on Paralititan:
But Broomey here would probably be more Puertasaurus-y, because larger creatures require proportionately larger organs to function, and thus would have a much wider chest. In which case, it would weigh about 300-350 tonnes, or about 330-385 tons (I did say in RDS 2 that I scaled off of Puertasaurus, so the weight would be the same). But, this image looks a bit different.
This one looks more like modern reconstructions of Argentinosaurus, albei…

First of all, this will probably be a series. Second, no, I'm not retarted, the Dino stats blog isn't part of this series, so there are 3 in the series so far.
Alright, now to the topic of the blog. The weight of the Isle's Tyrannosaurus. Now, I've said multiple times that Isle Rexes would be several tonnes heavier than real Rexes, but I wanted to know exactly how much. Isle Rexes are 13.7 meters (45 feet). I'll scale them off of "Sue," the largest known Tyrannosaurus specimen. Since Isle Rexes are fairly bulky, I'll use maximum current estimates of weight. So, the formula would be 13.7/12.3 (Sue's length in meters)=~1.1138^3=~1.382*9.5 (Sue's maximum weight in tonnes)=~13.127 tonnes. So, that's the weight, right? Well, as I pointed out in …Read more >
(this is RDS 2).
This is off topic for the Isle, but I felt like making this.
Anyways, regarding speculative dinosaurs, they usually have way over estimated weights. What do I mean? Well, A. fraggilimus is estimated at 122.4 tonnes (135 tons), which is based on a 27 meter (89 foot) Diplodocus, and it seems fairly legitimate, because it basically just assumes similar proportions to a Diplodocus and scales from there. However, if you use the same formula, and scale to a 40 meter (131 foot) Puertasaurus from a 26 meter (85 foot), 59 tonne (65 ton) Paralititan, you'll get an estimate of 214 tonnes (234 tons), and that doesn't even take into account that Puertasaurus had a much broader chest than Paralititan. The thing is, Puertasaurus is estimat…Read more >
(This is RDS 1).
I won't go over everything, but here you go.
Tyrannosaurus rex - the real life maximum size ("Sue") could reach 12.3 meters (40 feet) and weighed as much as 9.5 tonnes (10.5 tons), though a more common size would be 11-12 meters (36-39 feet) and 6-8 tonnes (6.6-8.8 tons). The in game T. rex is 13.7 meters (45 feet), which could give a weight several tonnes more than a real Tyrannosaurus, even Sue.
Acrocanthosaurus - real life size would be 11.5 (38 feet) meters and 6.2 tonnes (6.8 tons), the game seems to get this quite well, though the length may be slightly exaggerated.
Shantungosaurus - the in game Shant seems to use fairly low end estimates of about 13-14 (43-46 feet) meters, judging by how it's about the length of a Rex. …Read more >
