Essay

Spinosaurus was very strange even by dinosaur standards. It had a body like that of a lean tyrannosaur, a head like that of a titanic crocodile and a sail on its back like that of a mythical dragon! Also, its straight, conical teeth show that unlike most other big meat-eaters, Spinosaurus ate mostly fish!
