Spinosaurus meaning ‘Spine Lizard’ due to its distinctive spine. It has been argued by scientists that they were used to regulate their body temperature, as it was believed they were cold-blooded animals. Their long snout may have been used to catch fish using its crocodile shaped mouth to eat the soft flesh of rotting animal carcasses.
