Welcome to the Spinosaurus Special! As the world reels from the shocking revelations on a certain über-poplar long-snouted theropod, put forth in the laterst paper bt Dr. Thomas Holtz and Dr. Dave Hone, we decided that our third episode should come out early and be all about Spinosaurus! Natee, Marc, Nick and Niels discuss their favourite Spinosaurus reconstructions throughout history, and Marc interviews Dr. Dave Hone on the paper, which appeared on January 7 2021 in Palaeo Electronica.
