Okay, rules pretty simple. We debate (using science and not fanboyness) on what would happen one two dinosaurs would clash. All are acceptable, except for T-rex vs. Spinosaurus as that one gets very very very long.

Let's start with Triceratops vs. Giganotosaurus

List of duels accomplished

I'm afraid there is no such thing as honest, unbiased science.

I don't believe Triceratops was much of an opponent. It did have a threatening skull display, but I'm not sure how deadly exactly it might have been. Giganotosaurus was no Tyrannosaurus, either. It existed in a completely different ecological niche.

This is a hard one.

(what I meant was this: Trike wins cause they're cool and Giga sucks: )
And good, I like tough fights.

I'd say Trike.  Thick hide, plus it can keep attacking from a good distance.

I'd place my bet on triceratops, honestly.

By the way, I'm sure we could have a rational discussion on Spinosaurus vs. Tyrannosaurus here. It isn't like any of us are fanboys of either dinosaur.

Can do, will do.

Looking at the Spinosaurus IRL and the Tyrannosaurus IRL, they both have their own flaws.

T. Rex only had its head for a weapon, unless its prey fell down, in which case it could use its feet.  

Spinosaurus had jaws strong enough to take care of fish the size of a great white shark [according to Dr. Dino at JPL Razz], and it had its strong arms.  The problem, however, is that the Spinosaur's jaws would be a major danger to its health.  If a T. rex bit it, it's break apart.  And, if it tried for the neck, it could get seriously hurt.

I think it comes down to size, which Spinosaurus has plenty of.  it could just knock down Rexy and go for its neck.  The neck is roughly the size of a Great White, so it could do some damage.

In all honesty, I don't know. Its either's game.
