Spinosaurus Tooth

- +
Spinosaurus "Spine Lizard" from the Cretaceous 112 to 97 million years ago. One of the largest Carnivorous dinosaurs. The  skull was long and narrow and very similar to a modern crocodilian. Scientist believe while Spinosaurus ate fish it could also hunt in both water and on the land in terrestrial environments. The distinctive spines down the spin were extensions of vertebrae that were connected with skin to form a sail like structure. Spinosaurus had teeth at the front of the jaw and 12 teeth at the back. Between these teeth there was a large tooth or possibly 3 that fitted into a space in the teeth on the upper jaw.
