This year seems to be very good for spinosaurs, this one is the second one of this year. Ostafrikasaurus is its name and it is based only on teeth.

Name: Ostafrikasaurus crassiserratus
Weigth: ?
Lenght: estimated by me at 8,2 metres,based on a comparison between the teeth of irritaor and that of ostafrikasaurus.
Place: Tendaguru formation,Africa
Time :Late jurassic
Diet: Fish and meat.

First scientifically correct Ostafrikasaurus on Da and also the first reference sheet and size stimation ever of this animal hahahahahaha, triumph is mine :D

I like the Ostafrikasaurus that Hyrotrioskjan made more because it's supposed to be a very primitive (the basalmost) member of the spinosaurids and here the face and snout look like the other spinosaurids that lived much later.

I am not really sure on some animals being different which look very similar. Can i use this as reference ?

I would be honored if you would use this as a reference :D

Of course i will use this. I will be making a picture of this theropod group. Previously there was like 6 members and now i noted there are like 10 of them,however few of them doesn't seem to have enough proof that they legitimately belong to this group.So i have decided to put 8 members overall.
                           Usually if i need some animal for reference i will look for skeleton pictures,mostly the head is the one which is needed and if no skeleton picture is available for an animal i search then i would have to look for drawings. If someone could provide me reference image always of the animals which i want to make,then there is no need for me to waste time searching for reference image on my own.lol. I would want to make few more theropods and i noted that you have made plenty of them. If i need any of them as reference ,i will let you know.

Great picture ^^
The name is quite interesting. "Ost" is German for east. I love names like this that are made from German words, English words and so on ^^

Also the spinosaurids are definitely my favorite piscivore theropods ^^

Too spinosaur like. I think the Ostafrikasaurus was more primitive, megalosaur-dilophosaur(?) like.

But this IS a spinosaur.

We al know this. But because of its age, its should be look a little bit more priitive, megalosaur like.

Ah, also hast du meinen Vorschlag angenommen =)
Sehr schön finde ich hier die Umsetzung der krokodilartigen Merkmale.

I do like the size of this one, not quite colossal but not tiny either.
