Spinosaurus Dinosaur ToothDescription: Spinosaurus was first discovered over 100 years ago in Egypt by Ernst Stromer. The fragmentary remains indicated a large dinosaur with a dramatic sail on its back. Unfortunately all the specimens from that original discovery were lost in a bombing raid in World War II. Until recently, fragmentary remains of isolated teeth, claws, and a few bones were all that were known of this enigmatic dinosaur. Unfortunately the remains are still quite incomplete.

Nevertheless, Spinosaurus was a large carnivorous dinosaur which appears to have lived a near aquatic existence. The large, unserrated conical teeth are more suited for seizing slippery prey than for slicing meat from bones.
