Metriacanthosaurus parkeri

Name: Metraicanthosaurus parkeri
Length: 8 metres
Weight: 1,5 tons
Family: Sinraptoridae
Diet: Meat
Place: England
Time Jurassic(lower oxfordian)

Originally a species of Megalosaurus, Metriacanthosaurus is know its own genus. The animal was one of the top predators of its time and a fierce hunter. It had a low sail or hump on its back, similar to acrocanthosaurus, but smaller. Its name means moderately spined lizard. Metriacanthosaurus is one of my favourite jurassic dinosaurs.

I thought that this dinosaur was a basal spinosaurid.
