Probably the most plausible dinosaur cryptid.

Not really. A theropod of this size would have a hard time staying hidden.

Well, okay you got me there.
But biologically, it at least looks like an actual theropod, unlike some non-bird theropod cryptids (*cough*AricaMonster*cough*KasaiRex*cough*).

Isn't the Arica monster supposed to be a scaly raptor or something?

Most people think that, but apparently it also has a dog snout and external ears.

I once had a theory that "horned serpents" and furry sea monsters were really semi-aquatic basal tyrannosaurids, their "humps" really just their tall spine, tail and snout poking above the water.

Interesting theory. You should re-use it for a speculative fiction.

Umm, how exactly can a ~15-meter theropod have a mass of ~40 tonnes? Judging from the hip height, it should be closer to ~10ish tonnes.

Ray Harryhausen would have made a movie about it if he had known about it. Maybe WIllis O'Brien knew about it, since O'Brien created the story used to make The Valley of Gwanji

Yes, but that wasn't in the arctic.

True, since it would be easier to tell a dinosaur movie set in Mexico over being set in northern Canada.

Definitely! A good movie though, not a SyFY production with it picking off stupid pretty people like a giant psycho killer. :D

It is based on a ceratosaur, but a tyrannosaur would make more sense.

Yes. An especially dubious one, though.

I think that it has been described having fur long before anybody thought about Dinosaurs being fuzzy makes it more believable. But still I don't think it would be very likely to such a big animal to survive so long after officially being extinct without being noticed by science in form of fossils or live animals

That's what I thought at the time, but it's more likely a tyrannosaur if anything.

It's well within the realm of possibility for a tyrannosauroid to evolve a crest or horn like that. Guanlong had a similar crest: [link]

If that thing WAS around, I suspect it's dead now. I mean, in places like Siberia, Alaska and Northern Canada how hard could it be to find a Dinosaur? Especially one that' 50ft long?
Reply
:iconthemorlock:
TheMorlock Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2012  Student General Artist
Yeah, I'm skeptical it ever existed. Wouldn't it appear in native folklore and mythology? I'll have to look into that.

What if, they exaggerated in the surprise, and fear of the thing, it could have just been 30-25 feet but it was snowy and they were scared and when someone is scared the mind makes things even scarier.
