The largest dinosaurs and pterosaurs seem to have been much larger than the largest animal terrestrial/avian species since. Was the Mesozoic somehow more hospitable to large animal species than today's world? Have subsequent evolutionary innovations shifted the balance towards smaller species?

Interestingly the still-existing blue whale seems to be the largest animal ever.
