Both competitors with the T rex for baddest dude in the neighborhood.


More Dino Info Please

Spinosaurus was among the largest of all known carnivorous dinosaurs, possibly larger than Tyrannosaurus and Giganotosaurus. Estimates place it around 50 feet in length and 7 to 20 tons in weight. The skull of Spinosaurus was long and narrow, similar to that of a modern crocodile. Spinosaurus is known to have eaten fish, and most scientists believe that it hunted both terrestrial and aquatic prey; evidence suggests that it lived both on land and in water as a modern crocodilian does. The distinctive spines of Spinosaurus, which were long extensions of the vertebrae, grew to at least 5.4 feet long and were likely to have had skin connecting them, forming a sail-like structure that was important for temperature regulation.
