Description:

The longest meat-eating predator at 50 feet, Spinosaurus, or "thorn lizard," is not considered the "biggest" only due to being more lightly built than T. rex. Spinosaurus originated in what is now Egypt and is instantly recognizable by the huge sail across its back. Jutting upward from Spinosaurus' backbone, this sail reaches six feet high in places and is composed of bony vertebral spines with tough skin between spines.

Spinosaurus' large sail is still something of a mystery to scientists. It might serve to help them cool off in their hot climate, or it might help them catch sun to warm up faster on cool mornings. Some believe it gives the Spinosaurus a larger, more menacing appearance to intimidate other big carnivores. Another theory is that it might be used to impress and attract potential mates, like a middle-aged man with a flashy car.

Spinosaurus spends most of its time along shorelines or wading in shallow ponds and lagoons to catch its preferred meal--large fish. A nine-foot-long Coelacanth fish has no chance to escape Spinosaurus' crocodile-shaped jaws, which are filled with sharp conical teeth. Like T. rex, Spinosaurus walks on powerful hind legs, but, unlike T. rex, has longer and more substantial front limbs. The ends of Spinosaurus' forelimbs are equipped with long curved claws, perfect for raking a passing giant garfish from the water.
