The most striking feature of the eighteen metre tall carnivorous dinosaur was a large sail, made of skin, on its back. This deadly carnivore weighed several tonnes and could grow to be up to 17 metres long! The Spinosaurus had multiple sharp, straight teeth in its crocodile-like mouth. Its meals mainly consisted of other dinosaurs or fish. The intelligently designed sail on its back served several functions. In cold-blooded dinosaurs, the sail probably contributed to vital temperature regulation by collecting or distributing heat. It also served to impress potential mates.
