New Bones Discovery Unearths Spinosaurus- Bigger Than T.Rex, Known To Swim

The 50-foot long, semi-aquatic predator, known as Spinosaurus, apparently had a crocodile snout as big as a person and walked on duck-like, webbed feet in what is now North-African territory some 97 million years ago.

The biggest and the baddest among meat-eating dinosaurs, Spinosaurus may have also been the first dinosaur to take to the water, swimming in North Africa's rivers some 97 million years ago, researchers reported on Thursday.
