My interpretation of the terror of prehistoric North Africa! The most complete skeleton was destroyed during WWII in Berlin but the sketches and measurements remain. I have developed the animal around a lowland, valley, river/wetland lifestyle. It is commonly believed among many academics that Spinosaurus was likely a scavenger and fish/aquatic critter eater and was not likely to have been a swift chase-down predator. I made the tongue of the animal blue to reflect a possible lure for fish and other aquatic creatures to within snapping distance of the creatures mouth. I also made the sail a colorful display as well as an air conditioning device that is also a possibility commonly discussed among the scientific community.
