Go Away, Crocodiles by HodariNundu Go Away, Crocodiles by HodariNundu
Un Spinosaurus patesco-pinguinesco puede ocuparse tranquilamente de sus asuntos confiando en su falsa boca de tiburón gigante para espantar a los cocodrilos de modo que no compitan con el por los peces.
Antes de que alguien se lo tome en serio, un favor... no lo hagan. :B Es solo un doodle medio caricaturesco que hice en un momento de aburrimiento, más porque me pareció divertido que por otra cosa. No creo que ningun cocodrilo sea tan tonto como para caer en un truco así.

A duck-penguin-like Spinosaurus can happily mind its own business, relying on its false giant shark mouth to scare crocodiles away so they don´t compete with it for the fish.
Before someone takes this seriously... don´t. It is just a cartoonish doodle I made in a moment of boredom, cuz it looked fun. I don´t think any crocodile would be dumb enough to fall for this.

Except perhaps for Sarcosuchus

I think Sarcosuchus lived long before Spino.

Well regardless of how realistic or unrealistic this is, its still a pretty original concept nonetheless. :thumbsup:

No se trata de inteligencia, se trata de agudeza visual. La verdad es que tanto los cocodrilos como sus parientes mas cercanos; los caimanes y los gaviales, son realmente inteligentes pues permanecen inmóviles a la orilla del río con los ojos y los orificios por encima de la superficie adoptando así la similitud de un tronco y aprovechándose de la inocencia de sus presas (como si todas fuesen tontas o solo tuviesen baja agudeza visual ¬¬) para atacarlas por sorpresa cuando se acercan a beber al agua.
Aunque la verdad es que los cocodrilos tienen un sentido de la vista bastante desarrollado por lo que lo mas probable es que no hayan picado ni de una forma ni de otra XD
Eso sí, seamos realistas; los elefantes, por ejemplo, también son fuertes e inteligentes y, sin embargo, no tienen una vista tan aguda. Por lo que, por muy inteligentes que sean, seguro que este truco les asustaría mas que cualquier ratón.

El asunto es que se moveria muy lentamente, y tanto cocodrilos como tiburones tendrian tiempo de sobra para percatarse de que no es real.

Bueno, es solo una suposición. Como es cuestión de agudeza visual y no de inteligencia se me ocurrió pensar que cualquier animal con baja agudeza visual existente se asustaría independientemente del nivel de inteligencia que tenga. Ni tu ni yo nos lo creeríamos, ¿pero un topo, por ejemplo?
Sería genial hacer ese experimento :D

I must admit that is clever, but I like the spinosaurus that ate large fish AND other dinosaurs. Because spino couldn't rely on fish alone, it had to hunt too, and with jaws like a crocodile and huge claws, I bet it could make mince-meat of even a paralititan.

In addition Spinosaurus jaws look more similar to gharial jaws (gharials are crocodilians that eat mainly fish) then that of a Nile or saltwater crocodile.

That bit isn't true. They look like the jaws on large phytosaurs (considered to have a similar niche to Nile crocs)
Reply
:icongraviousgaruda00:
GraviousGaruda00 Featured By Owner May 3, 2015   Artist
Yes but phytosaurs probably didn't have a similar niche to Nile crocodile and if it did it probably didn't tackle large land dwelling prey.

acepredator Featured By Owner May 3, 2015
Some phytosaurs like Smilosuchus, Redondasaurus, etc did tackle large prey, and their skulls show. They have much more robust skulls than gharials or piscivorous phytosaurs, and closer to saltwater crocs or Spinosaurus.

Realistically during the dry season Spinosaurus diet probably consisted of carrion, small to medium sized unarmored dinosaurs, perhaps some land dwelling crocodiles and pterosaurs. But during the wet season it's diet shifted to a more piscovourous diet sustaining its self off of large fish, fresh water sharks, and perhaps some crocodillians!

I have to disagree with you thinking Spinosaurus could hunt large sauropods, hunting dinosaurs like ouranosaurus and any thing smaller then ouranosaurus seems more Likely, as well as scavenging, but sauropods are just out of its league! It's claws were big and all but it didn't have the jaws, teeth, nor body build to handle a sauropod.

:iconacepredator:
acepredator Featured By Owner Apr 21, 2015
Yes a sauropod is too much (unless we mean a subadult Aegyptosaurus, in which case the theropod has a slight size advantage)

 Surprisingly, the fish Spinosaurus preyed on were pretty large. Some of them were as big as elephants.

I know that, but still what about in the dry season when there weren't any fish? spino would have to turn to hunting other dinosaurs.

I'm thinking when it comes to eating dinosaurs Spinosaurus went after young hadrosaurs and iguanadontids but was partial to baby sauropods. 8P

There were no hadrosaurs in Spino's place and time, if I'm not mistaken.

 I Always thought it ate mainly sea creatures like fish and crocodilians but it was partial to small dinosaurs and carrion :) to hell with it being a super predator! T. rex is a better super predator! It was the largest predator in its territory and no other theropod in the area was even close to that size! Plus the max size is 49-52 feet long 8-12 tons and. 18-20 feet tall |83

Uh...hate to disappoint you, but Spinosaurus could grow to 60 feet long...sorry. But I do agree that Tyrannosaurus is the better super predator.

 Tyrannosaurs being superior predators is outdated myth.

I believe Spino lived near the coast so there was always plenty of water and fish... I may be wrong, who knows. Either way, I'm sure it was big enough to eat whatever it wanted.

I don´t think it was a heron, I don´t think it was a bear, I think it was Spinosaurus. If we brought it back (or went back to its time) I'm sure it would be pretty unique.

What I mean by bear is that it ate fish and other dinosaurs, like bears will eat fish and other animals (as well as plants).
And there is fossil evidence that other spinosaurs included other dinosaurs in their diet.

I agree! It is brilliant conceived, but if Spinosaurus had a false eye, then the crocodiles would be swimming back to shore. :)
