The study found Spinosaurus is so far the only large aquatic dinosaur

In the movie “Jurassic Park 3” had dominated the first two films in the “dragon world” dinosaur Tyrannosaurus Rex was killed by another one, so a lot of dinosaur fans greatly surprised. Beat the winner is the famous Tyrannosaurus Rex Spinosaurus. However, the new study found that Spinosaurus in reality a fight with the Tyrannosaurus Rex seems unlikely, because the former is more life in the water. The findings overturn previous academic dinosaurs living in the land of universal awareness. Maybe in the real world history, dinosaurs more diverse than imagined.

New research paleontologists found this giant carnivorous dinosaur waterborne know better than previously thought, and so far only found a large aquatic dinosaur.

[Disappear] and reproduce

In fact, as early as 1912, the German paleontologist Ernst Shiteluomo discovered in Egypt Spinosaurus fossil. Shiteluomo later the fossils to Europe. 1944, the fossil was destroyed in World War II bombing, leaving only a limited number of research value of the pieces. Since then, research on Spinosaurus lost in the history and the war.

Until 2008, the University of Chicago paleontologist Nizar Ibrahim been found in Morocco Spinosaurus fossil clues from fossil dealers there. After many setbacks, Ibrahim in Morocco an excavation site found a nearly complete fossil Spinosaurus.

So far, Spinosaurus veil has been lifted. September 11, Spinosaurus recovery model on display at the National Geographic Museum in Washington.

[Reduction] and found

After the reduction, which lived about 95 million years ago, the late Cretaceous giant carnivorous dragon body length of about 15 meters, the Minister of long neck, head, snout alligator jaws, sharp teeth, long or flat theropod, may A similar type of duck toes webbed structure, there is a column minister back rows of long spines, the longest spines up to 2 meters. Compared with T. rex, Spinosaurus grow three meters in length, although both standing and walking on hind legs, but Spinosaurus Tyrannosaurus forelimbs developed than in the jaw when the prey can be used with a powerful bite force function together.

Originally, most of the dinosaur paleontology scholars believe have a fear of water-based, only a few dinosaurs foraging for prey or wading can be short. But new research on Spinosaurus reversed this perception, because of the many features of Spinosaurus suggest that it is not only live in water and can dive or swim. Spinosaurus to aquatic organisms for food, perhaps the giant shark, sawfish and even ancient crocodile.

Spinosaurus fossil found Ibrahim said Spinosaurus and other dinosaurs ever found have very different, even a “monster” or “alien dinosaur” characteristics of these differences, “forcing experts to rethink on dinosaurs both cognition. “

The study found that there is clear evidence that Spinosaurus lived in rivers and lakes. It’s a bit like a whale hip bones, which features dense arrangement of bones helps diving foraging, its nose up and at the upper end of the head, helps when diving surfaced to breathe. Spinosaurus able to walk, it is possible terrestrial habitats, but it is clear that activity on the land than many clumsy in the water.

American University of Maryland dinosaur expert Thomas Holtz said the new find convincing, surprisingly, also shows that awareness of past scholars large deviation dinosaurs, dinosaur diversity beyond imagination.

Although the “Jurassic Park 3” Spinosaurus and Tyrannosaurus There was a very exciting fight, but to participate in the study Spinosaurus said Paul Sereno, in reality these two dinosaurs did not live in the same period, also No one living in the same land. If you really want Talia egg into a fight, but in the water, Spinosaurus certainly easy victory.
