Spinofaarus vegatiacus by yoult Spinofaarus vegatiacus by yoult
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) or Vega, 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.

Truly a magnificent creature. Spinosaurus looks weird and unnatural, but this is something I can actually believe existed.

This warms my heart!
Clearly, the pubis has evolved to provide a special "seat" for sitting on small oceanic islands, without accidentally sliding onto the entire rock (in case it needed to dive back into the water quickly so it could kill again!)

Now that Spinosaurus legs have been found, and yet no arms(aside from the isolated NMC 41852 humerus, which is, well, isolated), maybe the arms should be the one missing now instead of the legs :)

At least he was drawing many following reconstructions during the last few weeks based on the new material... including the combat-crawler version. ;)

:iconspinoinwonderland:
Well, maybe I could make my own version of this creature(different name, of course) soon, but of course lacking forelimbs entirely.

Did you really get inspiration from this(the Spinofaarus) when drawing your Spinosaurus? The similarity at the head was a bit uncanny to me.

Spinosaurus would probs still have legs. There are bones that suggest hindlimbs in your skeletal reconstruction.

The known toe-bones just form a vestigial structure on the body of Spinofaarus (similiar to Cetaceans). Please take in mind that the hip is constructed very traditional here, as we don't know remains from it either. It's likely that such a heavy fully aquatic animal had a quite different hip-shape in comparison to its earlier relatives (like Suchosaurus).

Actually a marine Spinosaurus would still be among the largest marine predators ever. It would dwarf Hainosaurus in sheer mass, and would rival the largest Pliosaurus species.
