For I give you my heart (mine because I ripped it off someone else, of course).

Will probably do a short story about this sometime in the future.

(Also sorry for being late for actual Valentine's Day)

You can read a short story about this here

:aww: This almost makes me not hate Valentine's day!

(On a semi-random note, how much is known about sexual dimorphism in tyrannosaurs? I'm sure if anyone handed out nuptial gifts it was probably the male, but was he also the bigger one?)

There's no conclusive evidence for the degree of sexual dimorphism in tyrannosaurs. Actually, the idea that Sue is female is pure conjecture, since there's no way to know for sure. If they followed the general rule among animals alive today, the male was probably bigger, more colorful and more ornamented, but of course this is all speculation for now.

I was wondering because birds of prey emphatically do not follow the general rule :) Of course, the degree to which a one kilogram aerial predator can be compared to a six-ton terrestrial one is... debatable. How big is the T. rex that supposedly had medullary bone?

Tyrannosaurs can be compared to hyenas in many aspects (bite, endurance, etc) and hyenas are female-dominated (even to the extent they the girls have dicks!)

Indeed. I could not find any estimations of size for MOR-1125 other that "medium-sized", but according to age estimations it died when 18 years old, while Sue is estimated to have died at 28 years old, so there is probably a good deal of size difference between those two.

Dinos had massive hearts, a sauropods would probably be even larger! That heart looks to be a good size for a Daspletosaurus itself! :)

I guess going by the hearts of whales, sauropod hearts could have been the size of a small car then!

Fragillimus335 Featured By Owner Feb 16, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yup, I'd assume a weight of ~800lbs for Brachiosaurus, seeing as Ostriches have a heart about 1% of body mass and sauropods have even longer necks!

The plot twist here is that the heart used to belong to the Daspletosaurus on the left's mate, who has since been slaughtered by a rival in a bid for their affection.

You can see it in their eyes.
