Spinosaurus lived in North Africa, and was the largest known theropod and land carnivore to have ever existed. Its name means 'spiny lizard' because of the distinctive spines forming a sail on its back. It had an elongated snout, more like a Gharial's compared to other theropods. It is believed that they lived and hunted in water as well as on land.
The first Spinosaurus discovery occurred in 1921 in the Bahariya Formation of western Egypt. Other specimens have been recovered from other sites in North Africa including Morocco and Niger.
The fossil locations indicate that Spinosaurus lived in coastal regions with floodplains, swamp flats and mangrove forests.
