Perhaps, it’s in human’s nature to find out who’s the ultimate champion. From the bloodbath in the Colosseum during Ancient Rome to the modern-day debate about Batman vs Superman, we simply love to know who’s the mightiest of all.
How about an epic battle between nature’s most fearsome creations?
Using the time machine, we brought back nature biggest, baddest monsters to battle for the title: King of the Ocean and Lord of the Land.
King of the Ocean: Mosasaurus vs Megalodon

Mosasaurus is a gigantic lizard (18 metres) that once dominated the Cretaceous seas 90 million years ago. It is believed to leave the land for the water. The Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event wiped out all the dinosaurs, including Mosasaurus.
Mosasaurus pretty much dined on everything, from shellfish, sharks to its own kind. Mosasaurus had about 50 massive sharp teeth. Its paddle-like limbs and strong tail provided it the speed, agility, and dexterity to be a deadly predator.

Megalodon lived during the Cenozoic Era and became extinct at the end of the Pliocene 2.6 million years ago.
How scary is Megalodon? Imagine the great white shark, except now it’s as big as a school 15 metres school bus. We could literally walk through a Megalodon’s 7 ft. jaws as though it’s a door. A door filled with more than 250 razor-sharp teeth. Given its humongous size, it feasted on whales and large fishes to survive. Megalodon is believed to be a strategic master as it patiently waited to strike with its preys with deadly precision.

Upon being released into a gigantic fish tank, both sea monsters started circling each other. Mosasaurus initiated the attack, trying to rip off a huge piece of its opponent.
Megalodon countered with its massive bite. After several clashes, both monsters went back to circling the other, looking for the opportunity to deliver the deadly bite.

Eventually, Mosasaurus had to surface to breathe, and this turned out to be its last breath as the Megalodon strike beneath the Mosasaurus with lightning speed. Although the Mosasaurus had thick skin, it would be not much for the unearthly fangs, cutting it to pieces.
Lord of The Land: Tyrannosaurus vs Spinosaurus

Tyrannosaurus rex, arguably the most well-known dinosaur of all time, stood two-storied strong and was as long as a bus. T-rex came from North America, late Cretaceous period. The ferocious predator had the strongest jaw ever: a 4-foot-long jaw perfectly tailored for bone-crushing action. With that jaw, it could tear off 150 pounds of flesh in a bite.
Combine this with its massive thighs and powerful tail for balancing, and you have one of nature’s most ferocious predators. As though that’s not scary enough, this apex predator was also one of the smartest dinosaurs.
However, its profound weaknesses lie it its running ability and short forearms.

Although outshone by its counterpart in popularity, Spinosaurus remains as the biggest meat-eating dinosaur ever. Being a few feets longer and taller, it had the size advantage over T-rex. Spinosaurus lived in the Cretaceous period in Africa. In terms of diet, Spinosaurus resembles a crocodile, primarily dining on fish. Its mighty forearms with sharp claws were useful for hunting its prey.

Despite dominating the rivers, Spinosaurus did not have much experience fighting bigger dinosaurs.

The earth-shuddering roars of the two beasts blasted through valleys, as the greatest fight of in the land unraveled. T-rex charged at Spinosaurus‘s neck, trying to deliver the killer bite. The Spinosaurus dodged and snapped back. They went back and forth. Although both did not suffer severe injuries, bruises from bites and cuts were all over both dinosaurs.

The Spinosaurus wore down as it wasn’t used to standing on two limbs. That’s when T-rex attacked. When the Spinosaurus lowered down from exhaustion, the T-rex delivered it otherworldly bite, snapping Spinosaurus‘s neck.
It thunderous roar followed, daring, “Who’s next?”
