Dinosaur Profile: Spinosaurus

Image
Spinosaurus

Spinosaurus lived in North Africa about 100 million years ago. It was a piscivore, which means it ate fish. Despite what people used to think about Spinosaurus, it didn't live on land. It was a quadruped and lived in water and it stayed there, swimming for the most of its life. We aren't sure about how Spinosaurus sounded like but, it probably sounded like a crocodile. It looked like a crocodile and behaved like a crocodile, so it had to sound like a crocodile.

Welcome to my new post.

I'd say because Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is coming out soon, I put this GIF of Indominus Rex fighting with Tyrannosaurus Rex and Raptor Blue. So, here we go.

Games
Jurassic Park Arcade: It doesn't sound like much but you have to capture 3 dinosaurs which are Triceratops, T-Rex, and Spinosaurus while shooting enemy dinosaurs and bugs. There is also some concept art.

This is the Spinosaurus.

This is the T-Rex. Jurassic Park Arcade is available at almost any arcade.

Saurian: This is the most accurate dinosaur video game ever created. You survive in Hell Creek while being a dinosaur.

Prehistoric Kingdom: Another accurate dinosaur video game just this time you build a dinosaur park.

Everything Dinosaur: It has dinosaur news, magazine reviews, and toy reviews.

Reddit: Dinosaurs, They Rock!: This website has articles on news, articles, discoveries, fluff, videos, fossil pics, finds, texts, discussions, questions, dino art, and Jurassic Park.

Raptor Red by Robert T. Bakker
Obviously, this book goes along the Walking With Dinosaurs way. It begins with Raptor Red, a female Utahraptor who loses her mate. Then, she goes on to an adventure to find a new mate and she goes to the Pacific.

Walking with Dinosaurs: A Natural History by Tim Haines
I forgot but, if you are a WWD fan, and if you have not read this book, I highly encourage you to do so. It has chapters with the name of each episode (6 Chapters) with what was in each episode.

The Age of Reptiles series by Ricardo Delgado
