Spinosaurus (Spinosaurus – “spiny lizard”) – the heaviest predatory dinosaur

Spinosaurus lived in North Africa, from the lower Albian to lower Cenomanian stages of the Cretaceous period, about 112 -97 million years ago. Spinosaurus may be the largest of all known carnivorous dinosaurs, even larger than Tyrannosaurus and Giganotosaurus. Estimates published suggest that it has 12.6 to 18 meters (41 to 59 ft) length and 7 to 21 tonnes (7.7 to 23 short tons) weight. Spinosaurus is thought to have eaten fish.It lived both on land and in water like a modern crocodile.
