Photo by @paoloverzone / Samir Zouhri, a paleontologist at Université Hassan II in Casablanca, explores a site near Sidi Ali, Morocco, for fossils. For @natgeo I documented a Spinosaurus find here in the desert. Spinosaurus was one of the largest predatory dinosaurs of all time. It is named after the elongated dorsal spines that supported an enormous “sail” of skin. In contrast to other dinosaurs–which are predominantly terrestrial–a long list of anatomical features suggest Spinosaurus adapted to live in freshwater, like crocodiles and hippopotamuses. #spinosaurus
