33ft-Long New Species of Dinosaur that Looked Like A Crocodile and Constantly Grew Teeth Discovered in Portugal
A new study revealed that Portugal was once home to a huge 33ft-long dinosaur that may be a new species of a spinosaurus. A reanalysis of its fossils showed a crocodile-like skull and spiny back. It likely roamed the Earth about 130 million years ago.
Initial studies suggested that the fossils belonged to Baryonyx walkeri, but the reanalysis said otherwise. The team has renamed the new species of spinosaurus Iberospinus natarioi. The team considered it one of the most complete specimens of spinosaurus they found, says Professor Octavio Mateus of the NOVA School of Science and Technology.
