Biggest hunting dinosaur was an aquatic

    Spinosaurus, the largest known predatory dinosaur, now turns out to be the only known dinosaur that spent most of its time swimming. While palaeontologists envisaged it as a sort of gigantic heron, it was actually an enormous version of a crocodile. Spinosaurus ate whole sharks, and came equipped with feet like paddles and sealable nostrils that allowed it to swim under water.
Spinosaurus was around 15 metres long, 3 metres longer than the more famous Tyrannosaurus rex. Fossils of Spinosaurus were first discovered in north Africa a century ago by German palaeontologist Ernst Stromer. But they were displayed in a Munich museum, and were destroyed in an Allied air raid in 1944. Since then only fragmentary remains have turned up.
