The crocodile-faced dinosaur may have been the largest predator in Europe

A huge dinosaur with a crocodile face and prickly back, which roamed today’s England about 125 million years ago, was one of the largest predators ever lurking in Europe.

Paleontologists have discovered the remains of this hippopotamus on the Isle of Wight off the south coast of England. Researchers named the newly discovered species “Spinosaurus from the White Rock” after the chalk geological layer found on the island where it was found. Because scientists have found only pieces of fossils, the animal has not yet received an official scientific name.
