Spinosaurus Aegypticus: Pharaoh of it's Time by CoffeeAddictedDragon Spinosaurus Aegypticus: Pharaoh of it's Time by CoffeeAddictedDragon
As you can tell from my recent posts, I've been exploring more about certain dinosaurs, namely the Spinosaurus. As you ALSO know, it was found in Egypt in 1912.

After looking at fan art for spinosaurus, I noticed something. Namely in the personified versions.

When ever someone gives a personality to spino, it seems they almost always go with the "aged sea captain" or "salty sailor" persona. To me, this doesn't make sense, seeing as spinosaurs most likely lived in marshes and at river and probably wouldn't hunt at the sea due to the tides, strong current and other, bigger preds swimming around there.

Since it was found in Egypt, I see spino personified as a regal, proud dino. Expecting respect like an Egyptian Pharaoh, living happy by the Nile, gobbling up fish and growing full and content. If you were the hunter of fish and land prey, you'd be pretty well off too.

Anyways, here's a little design I did as a pass time while playing Dino Sim on Roblox.

Someone is really into this animal rn :D (Big Grin)  but i understand it. I love the Spinosaurus too. Always had a breeding station just for Spinos in Ark 'cause they are so well designed in this game :3
Great job with this art as always Star and i love the little eye make-up you gave him ;>

Thank you. I believe it called the Wadjaat eye or the Eye of Horus, usually applied with a compound called "Kohl"

That is so amazingly beautiful! Stunning job Star.

The spinosaurs Aegypticus, one of my most favourite dinosaurs and the first time I herd its full name was in Jurassic Park 3. My favourite of all the Jurassic parks. ^^
