THE WORLD THIS WEEK: Who’s the king dino, now?
New evidence shows the Tyrannosaurus Rex and the bigger Gigantosaurus weren’t the kings of the dinosaurs. Instead experts have worked out that the Spinosaurus was the biggest, measuring 17 metres (55ft) from nose to tail, with long, crocodile-like jaws. The giant dinosaur was first discovered in 1912, but most of the fossils were destroyed by a World War Two bomb. A new examination of two skull bones proves that the Spinosaurus was more than four metres bigger than the T Rex!
