Bigger Than T.rex

Almost a century ago, paleontologists found fossil bones from a dinosaur that was bigger than Tyrannosaurus rex. The Spinosaurus fossils were destroyed in a WWII bombing raid. Now, the discovery of new bones in Morocco is reopening the investigation into this epic beast. Follow the paleontologists who are reconstructing this terrifying carnivore, a 53-foot-long behemoth with a huge dorsal sail, scimitar-like claws and superjaws. Bringing together experts in paleontology, geology, climatology and paleobotany, this special brings to life the lost world over which Spinosaurus reigned more than 65 million years ago.
