Now here’s a fello I completely neglected to upload. This was first uploaded to the isle’s discord a while back and I forgot to upload it anywhere els.  
Originally this was drawn when I heard someone thought ‘the isle’ spino models scales looked boring and I thought ‘what could it look like with more pronounced features’?
Now keep in mind this is in no way an etempt to make a “realistic” spino. This was made with the the intent of “more extream scales!”.
It’s a fusion of the old aquatic spino, the hyper and the neuro. (Why the ‘M’ spine? Because shut up I like it... and the strains currently have it)   
I’ll leave it up to you whether this is a magna or not since I never decided myself.

Drawn in Procreate.
Inspired by ‘the isle’

I think I like this version! I know it probably had shorter legs as it didn't need to run as much as other carnivores in the region, but it still would've had to stand and rear up to face down the many carnivorous therapods (and predatory animals in general) that it shared the region with.

Tapwing, do you know if the devs are considering this? 
I thought i heard that they wanted to redo the spino.

Wow! This is probably my favorite depiction of spinosaurus I have seen yet. The crocodilian features fit onto spinosaurus like a glove, and I love that the sail looks very rigid and even a little armored. Certainly doesn't look frail that's for sure :)

Perfecct balance between the IRL Aquatic crocodile Spinosaurys and the Jurassic Park Bipedal Spino.

I just use the primal carnage spinosaur. I like the spino without sorry excuses of legs

But the actual animal had rather short legs...?

That's what they've been saying

Well the paper and the fossil remains show that, so?

I love that you made it look crocodilian.

Either it's a magna or a redesign of the spino when implemented for survival

I honestly think this should be the replacement for the Spinosaurus in general. At least something like it.

But the M spine is also accurate to our current understanding of the animal, no?
