More Information:

Spinosaurus is a genus of theropod that roamed northern Africa during the cretaceous period. It is known for being the largest carnivorous dinosaur in the fossil record. Their remains are found in what is now the Sahara Desert. During the Cretaceous time period this area would have been a massive floodplain and mangrove forest. Spinosaurus had a distinct sail on its back, and had teeth specifically designed to catch fish, which probably made up a good portion of its diet along with any smaller dinosaurs that were unfortunate enough to cross Spinosaurus' path. An adult Spinosaurus would have grown to be a maximum of 10 tons, which is thousands of pounds heavier than an adult Tyrannosaurus Rex.
