Carnivorous “crocodile-headed” dinosaurs found in England

Carnivorous "crocodile-headed" dinosaurs found in England

Ancient researchers found two carnivorous dinosaurs with very strange characteristics on the banks of a river on Wright Island in England: skulls resembling crocodiles. The creatures were first known as spinosorites, then associated with the spinosaurus, which may be a waterfowl and larger than the Tyrannosaurus rex.

Both species found had long skulls similar to those of crocodiles and spinosaurs, but without the boat on the back, they had large vertebrae on their backs. One of the creatures was named Inferior serotonin reuptake inhibitorsNamely, “Heron of Hell with horns and crocodile face”, and so on Reprovenor Milnera, “Riverside Hunter”, named after the late British archaeologist Angela Milnes.

Prior to its discovery, only one species of spinosaur was found in the UK: parionix. “We already know that dinosaurs like the Pharionics have been waiting for decades for the discovery of the Isle of Wight,” said Darren Naies, an independent British archaeologist and co-author of the study. “But it’s a big surprise to find the remains of these two animals next to each other,” the scientist said.

The discovery was made with some bone fragments such as teeth and skull, which contain many anatomical clues to identify various organisms such as nerves and ligaments. Chris Baker, lead author of the study, says the dinosaur discovery is now in the UK with the greatest diversity of spinozers ever thought of.

Researchers are still skeptical about whether the Spinosaurus swam like a heron or swam like a crocodile in the late Cretaceous. However, this finding suggests that the dinosaur group originated in Europe and spread to Asia, Africa and South America.

The study with the discovery was published in the journal Science Natural contacts.
