Ostafrikasaurus by Hyrotrioskjan Ostafrikasaurus by Hyrotrioskjan
The newest member of the Spinosauridae is one their oldest.

We have just one isolated tooth from the Tendaguru, but this tooth tells us that it was a very primitive member of the clade. It's thicker and have larger denticles than the the teeth of Barynoyx (his next relative) so I decided to give him a look somewhere between Megalosaurus and Baryonyx.

This drawing is highly speculative so better don't use it as reference.

Its COOL!!! Looks like Dinocroc on syfy XD
But I think the megalosaur like primitive spinosaur is very realistic.

It's an amazing drawing, and the perspective is amazing. However, I have found one fault, but it's not even a real fault. You've put feathers on a fully mature Baryonyx, so wouldn't a more primitive member of the group also have feathers? It just doesn't make sense to leave them off when you've given them to a derived spinosaurid.

There are two reasons for that difference =)
1. I think that every spinosaur had proto-feathers in it's youth, but that doesn't mean that every species have feathers as an adult.
2. Baryonyx lived in the north, maybe even in a moderate climate zone where it was a bit colder during the winter.

It is an awesome work, very beautiful, but for feathers... why would a Velociraptor have feathers in Mongolia?
