Fun Spinosaurus Facts For Kids!
In a big river running through the marshes of North Africa lurks a deadly hunter called the Spinosaurus. Standing deep in the water, the Spinosaurus breathes through nostrils set deep in its head, with the majority of its jaws submerged under water. Using pressure sensors at the end of its snout, the Spinosaurus feels when a huge fish, the size of car, swims closer and closer. As the fish passes by, the Spinosaurus lunges forward and catches the fish in its crocodile-like jaws. The fish struggles but the Spinosaurus holds on tight, hooking the fish with its razor sharp claws and gobbling it down, before wading off in search of its next victim.
This dinosaur is the Spinosaurus and it is the hunter sitting at the top of the food chain in this watery environment. The Spinosaurus was even longer than the famous Tyrannosaurus Rex and had a distinctive sail on its back, which looked like a big fin. The sail might have helped it attract mates or scare off other dinosaurs.
