Hey, everybody!

I feel like the Tyrannosaurus rex and Giganotosaurus pages need to be updated a bit. Tyrannosaurus' max length was probably about 15 meters, and recent studies seem to show it was also about 10 tons in weight. Also, new research suggest that T. rex actually was bigger than Giganotosaurus, being only about 6-8 tons, being shorter and being about the same length. Here are some sites saying T. rex was 15 meters:

Here are some saying it was 10 tons:

And here's some sites saying T. rex was larger than Giga:

Please reply and tell me what you think, if we should change the pages or not.
