The world’s largest carnivorous dinosaur weighs 1.3 times as much as Tyrannosaurus rex.

The dinosaur introduced today is a giant. Tyrannosaurus rex, a carnivorous dinosaur known for its size, was just a small man in front of it. This dinosaur is the famous spinosaur, a carnivorous dinosaur living in northern Africa.

It can grow up to 14 meters in length, 5 meters in height, and may weigh up to 8 tons, while Tyrannosaurus Rex weighs only 6 tons, which is 1.3 times the difference. It can be seen that the size of this dinosaur. The greatest feature of the spinosaur is its high raised back, which is said to allow it to heat efficiently in the hot equatorial region, and the confusion of its back makes it look very tall and frightens potential rivals.

Spinosaurs lived between 114 million and 65 million years ago, when Northern Africa was still a hot and humid marsh, where spinosaurs lived.

They weren’t as fierce as Tyrannosaurus rex, and spinosaurs were relatively mild animals, as can be seen from their dietary structure. Most of the time, they feed on fish, only occasionally on small and medium-sized dinosaurs. So their biting power is lower than that of Tyrannosaurus rex, because these small animals don’t need much effort to eat them.

Owing to dietary reasons, echinosaurs’mouths were different from those of dinosaurs, but similar to crocodiles. And their forelimbs are very developed, so they can move both feet and four feet. It is estimated that when they swim in the water, such limbs can help them move the water like a dog’s plank and make them move forward quickly. So, dinosaurs are amphibians, making their food range much larger than most dinosaurs, which may be the reason why they have been able to live on Earth for nearly 50 million years.
