Oh Jurassic Park III; giver of jungle, Sam Neill being a badass and a crazy-ass fight between a T. Rex and a Spinosaurus.
Remember how tense this was?
Well it tuns out that this dino throw-down is all wrong, because according to new findings, there is no way a fight between a T. Rex and Spinosaurus would ever happen.
And here's why.
According to a report published in Science, the Spinosaurus spent the majority of its time in lakes and rivers in North Africa. Yep: it's the first dinosaur to be confirmed as semi-aquatic.
At 50 feet long, the Spinosaurus was bigger than landlubber the T. Rex, and paddled like a duck through its environment. It had small nostrils towards the back of its skull that allowed it to breathe while its jaws were submerged - like a crocodile.
Report co-author Paul Sereno likened the Spinosaurus to "a chimera - a combination of a bird and a crocodile".
This means that it probably would have been too front heavy to have ever walked on land upright. In other words; there's no way it could have snuck into the jungle to maul a T. Rex in Jurassic Park III.
Or as Sereno succinctly put it:
I think that we have to face the fact that the Jurassic Park folks have to go back to the drawing board on Spinosaurus
