Been doodling Spinosaurus again after the new findings came out. Also since every goddamn article and video about Spinosaurus has to compare it to T. rex, have a comparison between my rex and spino. The legs are a bit bigger than NatGeo’s version after what Scott Hartman came out with. Also thought it would be neat if the sail sort of mimicked the look of river debris and dead branches so it could camouflage itself as such when trundling along through the water.
Based on its huge thigh bones, it was 40m (130ft) long and 20m (65ft) tall.
Weighing in at 77 tonnes, it was as heavy as 14 African elephants, and seven tonnes heavier than the previous record holder, Argentinosaurus.
Scientists believe it is a new species of titanosaur - an enormous long-neck herbivore dating from the Late Cretaceous period. They unearthed the partial skeletons of seven individuals - about 150 bones in total - all in “remarkable condition”
