  1. Spino was claimed to be the first giant to eat fish spino sometimes gets food from land but mostly gets it from the river and it was claimed to be a great fish catcher and it was longer than the T. rex and almost as big as the titanoboa

  2. 2:10 wasteful? No
    He’s just Gordan Spino
    He thinks food will be unfresh in seconds

  3. Why does everyone talk about spinosaurus vs trex am I the only one that wants gigantosaurus vs spinosaurus

  4. This is why I want to pair up the spinosaurus with aqualad from young justice. Because they are both semi aquatic. Other dinosaur superhero team ups include:

    superboy with the tyrannosaurus because superboy says he hates monkeys and the T. rex likely would as well due to King Kong having broken its jaw.

    Kid flash and the gallimimus because they are both fast runners.

    Robin and the velociraptor because they are both highly intelligent.

    Miss Martian with the parasaurolophus because they are both sweet.

    Artemis and the triceratops because Artemis is fierce which is in relation to how the triceratops could go up against Tyrannosaurus rex.

    Zatanna and the pterosaur because pterosaurs could fly which some would consider to be powered by magic just like how zatanna is a magician.

    Rocket and the pachycephalosaurus because rocket is the first girl that we see in the show with short hair which is in relation to how the pachycephalosaurus used its head like a battering ram.

    Red arrow and the dilophosaurus because red arrow is an archer which is in relation to how the dilophosaurus spits poison.

    Cheshire and the therizenosaurus because they both use long sharp claws as their primary weapons.

    Guardian and the apatosaurus because the apatosaurus was a very large dinosaur which is in relation to how guardian is taller than all the other members of the team.

    Bumblebee and the stegosaurus because both bees and stegosaurs use their tails as their main defense.

    Wonder girl and the carnotaurus because the carnotaur could use its ability to change color in order to help the not so stealthy wonder girl.

    Robin and the oviraptor just because.

    Batgirl and the allosaurus just because.

    Blue beetle and the ankylosaurus because blue beetle wears a suit of armor which is in relation to the ankylosaurs thick hide.

  5. Spinosaurus wasnt 100% a fish eater . Yes it eated fish but not always

  6. Man, Spinosaurus used to be so cool!

  7. Spinosaurus May have also preyed on Sharks back in its time.
    If it can eat a big fish like onchopristis then it can eat a Shark.

  8. Who else remembers watching this as a kid

  9. Who else jumped when the spino snatched the fish

  10. My theory is that yes, Spinosaurus was mostly quadruple, but like Postasuchus and bears it could stand on it's hind legs for short periods of time, to either make itself look bigger or attack with it's long, sharp claws. Also for all the people that keep on arguing about "which would win? Spinosaurus or t-Rex?" There are never any guarantees on which would win. A lion may kill a warthog but it could easily go the other way around, the lion has strong mandibles and sharp claws, but the warthog has a tough hide and large tusks that could easily kill a lion if used right.
    Yes the t-Rex has a stronger bite force and could easily crush the neck of the Spino, but it all depends on IF the t-Rex can get past the Spino's claws and then get it's jaws around it's neck, same goes with the Spino it would have trouble dishing out the lethal blow to the t-Rex but if it can get a lock on the neck of the t-Rex then it could win by pure control alone, as the documentary stated, "the teeth of the Spino were perfectly adapted for gripping it's prey." It's like a fight between a lion and a crocodile, does it have the element of surprise? If so then they would have the advantage, if not then they would have a higher chance of losing to their opponent, but still has a chance at winning. In nature, there are no guarantees.
    Also just a quick note, if they did live at the same and same place as each other they would try do avoid confrontations unless absolutely necessary, like fighting over carcasses or water. A mountain lion doesn't come out of it's den one day and say " I'm going to go piss off a bear." That just doesn't happen, it fights to survive not for fun, it doesn't risk injury for the kicks, it risks injury because it's either that or death by starvation.

  11. . This is the first time i've heard of Spinosaurus…

  12. Spinosaurus: guess sushi it is😂

  13. I missed this show. I loved these. This episode is revolved round Spinosaurus. I learned so much about Spinosaurus. And this is why I love this dinosaur so much! That design was awesome! If only it was used in JP III
