Good day everyone! Today's monster is of the extinct variant, and if you have any suggestions for future extinct creatures, you’re very welcome to suggest one in the comments. Meet the Spinosaurus!
The spinosaurus is a gigantic meat eating dinosaur. In fact it is the largest meat eating animal to ever have walked the earth. Spinosaurus Aegyptiacus is even bigger than Tyrannosaurus Rex. One could ask why the spinosaurus isn’t as popular as the T-rex and there are a lot of factors that play a role to answer that question. There exist only very few fossil pieces of spinosaurus and the first that were found were destroyed during WW2 when the allied bombed Berlin. Since then more fossil samples have been found and by comparing spinosaurus to its close relatives baryonix and suchumimus we know now a lot more about the animal than earlier. But T-Rex is still the most popular extinct predator in the world, and I guess we can blame Jurassic Park partly for that. In case you haven’t watched the movie… What is wrong with you?
Jurassic Park 3 made a little up for it by letting Spinosaurus be a part of the movie. Unfortunately they did it in a very wrong way, both cinematically and paleontological. In JP3 the Rex bites the spino’s neck, but the spino isn’t damaged at all. It breaks loose and breaks the neck of t-rex with it’s own bite. T-Rex has the most powerful jaws of any dinosaur. Spinosaurus ate fish. Nuff said. *facepalms.* But Spinosaurus is still an awesome dinosaur and to some degree overlooked
