Spinosaurus (meaning “spined lizard”) is an extinct genus of spinosaurid theropod dinosaur that existed in what is now North Africa during the Cretaceous period. Spinosaurus is the largest of all known carnivorous dinosaurs at a length of 50 feet. Its most distinctive feature was the huge sail-like fin on its back. This sail was comprised of spines that extended from the top of the backbones. The spines of Spinosaurus were tremendous, the longest one found measured over 1.7 meters (5 feet) tall. The sail might have been used to attract a mate, making it look bigger to other predators it shares with, or act as a dorsal fin as it moves through the water. Like its relatives within the spinosauridae, it had large, powerful arms and enormous, hooklike claws for grabbing prey, much like modern bears do today.
