I saw the documentry of Paul Sereno's Suchomimus Therensis (not sure
of that second name) which my parent's in law taped for me on the
National Geographic Channel (my cable does not support it).
What a magnificent creature! It is absolutely beautifull! Is there
anyone who has more information for me about this beauty; a paper
photo's (off-line, I have learned my lesson), references etc. Anything?
Thanks in advance.
I spend all night mesmerizing about the creature and imagined it
standing there like modern Grizzlies when the salmon returns to their
spawning grounds. Several of them wading and standing in the water
feeding on the large quantities of migrating fish (speculation is not
a crime...) But let's see if someone has noticed this point too.
At the end they show a reconstruction by Czerkas I believe. The
colouration (always very debatable, I know) is beautifull. But if it
was a fishing predator looming over the water as they suggested,
wouldn't it be more logical to give it a light-coloured underside as
camouflage for the prey in the water? (Like sharks and crocodiles;
light underside-dark topside). Does anyone have a different opinion?
