Spinosaurus is one of the largest of all known carnivorous dinosaurs.

Spinosaurus, meaning "spine lizard", lived in the Cretaceous Period, about 112 to 97 million years ago, in what is now Africa. It was the largest carnivore of its time, between 12.6 and 18 m long, with a weight from 7 to 20 tons. The skull of this prehistoric animal was long and narrow, similar to that of today's crocodile.

Spinosaurus is known to have eaten fish, and most scientists believe that it hunted both terrestrial and aquatic prey. Its distinctive spines, - tall spikes which were actually long extensions of the vertebrae, - could grow to 1.7 m, with skin connecting them, and formed some kind of a sail-like structure.

Fossil remains of this prehistoric animal have been discovered in Northern Africa, Egypt and Morocco.
