Ichthyovenator! by HodariNundu Ichthyovenator! by HodariNundu
Hoy es el día de los dinosaurios con aleta :D
Ichthyovenator es el primer espinosaurio confirmado del continente asiático; medía de 7 a 9 metros y estaba emparentado con Baryonyx y Suchomimus, pero en vez de una sola aleta tenía dos; una en la espalda y la otra sobre la cadera.
Sus restos fueron hallados en Laos.


Today is the day of sailbacked dinos :D
Ichthyovenator is the first confirmed Asian spinosaur; it was around 7 to 9 meters long, and was related to Baryonyx and Suchomimus, but instead of one single sail, it had two; one on its back and the other over the hips.
Its remains were found in Laos.

Thanks

There's been talk recently that Ichthyovenator may not be a spinosaur, but rather a Concavenator-type animal. I'm not up to date, tho.

What about Siamosaurus?

Siamosaurus is just teeth; it may not even be a spinosaur for all we know.

I agree that being quadrupedal with huge claws is problematic. But I remember some mammals which do it. I'm sorry, I don't know the name in English. (Tamanoir or Fourmilier. A little specie is called Tamandua, in French, they look like an Echidna without spikes^^, you see?) Maybe Anter or Ant-Eater I think, or something like that in English

Yeah, the anteaters... we call them oso hormiguero in Spanish, which means something like "ant-eating bear" even tho they aren´t bears at all. Weird XD

My problem with the quadrupedal spinosaur idea is not so much the claws as the practicality of it; they seemingly had longer and stronger hind legs; bipedally they would probably be fast, and leave the claws free for defense; quadrupedally they would be slow and would have to rear up to use their claws anyways. I just don´t see any reason why they would go quadrupedal. But you never know...

Had seen it already. I prefer the sail idea, though.
Also, with claws that huge, being quadrupedal would probably be unpractical...

But we know next to nothing about the limbs of Spinosaurus itself, so who knows?

I know I am boring with this theory, but I perfectly imagine this one wihout sails, but humps. Two humps, one on the back and one on the tail, a camel-Like reptile^^
Spinosaurids were so big, especially Spinosaurus Aegypticus, so I imagine them too heavy too walk on two legs. I imagine them on all four legs, with a bulky back and a fearsome strenght.
I'll try to draw them one of these times (My major problem is, with awesome Dinosaurs drawer like you, Teratophoneus, Kaijusamurai or Hellraptor,... my works would look poor^^)

How much of this beast was recovered? That may not be two sails, and it may not be a spinosaur. I heard that recently it was announced that there was a spinosaurid in Australia - based on just one bone. Several relatives of more commonly known dinosaurs have been claimed to live in Australia based on just one or a few bones.

Yeah, I don´t buy the Aussie spino much myself. With Ichthyovenator however it seems that enough of its body was found to call it a spinosaur. The two sails were preserved, too.

Good thing spinosaurs are carnivore/piscivores - They're not afraid to get any kind of prey items they can get their paws on. Don't you agree?

spine plate or a diformation at birth:D

a sail on his tail but still i like the look

All things considered, one would think the genus name for a dinosaur this odd-looking could be a bit more...descriptive. :P

Yes but they're known only from teeth so there's really no way to know if they are really spinosaurids. Ichthyovenator is the first confirmed one.
