The most-up-to-date reconstruction of Spinosaurus aegyptiacus!
Obviously this animal was a seagoing piscovorous or at least to some degree sea-going. But actually there is nothing (besides a toe) to provide the assumption if had feet at all. Same for the arms!
I heard a pretty decent theory last time that it was actually a highly specialized diver. Spinosaurus went a way 100 mya modern Penguins are too cowardly to. It lost its hindlimbs entirely, developed flipper-like forelimbs and even a fluke.
It even had a trunk which was used to grab fishes and breath while diving! Having only forelimbs which are used to move on land counts as quadrupedal I hope!
It probably had some sort of fuzzy integument but one cannot be sure about such extreme changes, so I let it out.
Well, sadly for Spinosaurus this changes its status from biggest land-predator to average-sized marine-predator...
For those who wonder, this is losely based on the two weirdest ideas
on Spinosaurus' Appearance and Lifestyle
i've seen so far.If you'd like to see a Spinosaurus in a more scientific lightning instead you should try these: [link] and [link]I want to cement one thing:
I'm actually not making fun of Faa (or how he is called actually)
, both are in their respects quite decent people. Spinofaarus shall just show how far we can get from Science if we let our minds float in totally evidenceless speculations and inadequate comparisons. That's the drawback of the All-Yesterdays-Movement actually.
As much as I liked All Yesterdays and many of its Fanarts, it really bothered me how people who are not into the subject use speculation to justify totally meshed up Depictions.
