The largest dinosaurs ever discovered didn’t scrape the skies, but they did span lengths that required extreme physiology — bones and muscles and nerves — that could handle a multi-ton animal walking around. An Attack on Titan titan would need the same, but does a humanoid body scale up?
In my latest Because Science, I’m talking about the scaling laws a titan would need to overcome in order to be wall-smashing size. The main problem? The strength of muscles and bones does not scale up like volume, and therefore mass, does.
You know what? Good. Those things scare the crap out of me anyway.
