  The logo is comprised of a rather generalized
spinosaur; there is no spinosaur with that combination
of features, frankly, and there are some really
aberrant takes on anatomy that I guess were done to
"ease the mind" -- for instance, the neural spines are
elongated like that only in *Spinosaurus aegyptiacus*,
and frankly, they incline forward in the cranial
dorsals, not like the logo; there are too many
maxillary teeth, unlike _any_ spinosaur known, and the
skull appears to be based on *Baryonyx*, as the other
spinosaurs have more stout or blunt, or longer skulls.
"Spinosaur" is the best way to put it.

  Just griping ...

  Dinosaurs are horrible, terrible creatures! Even the
  fluffy ones, the snuggle-up-at-night-with ones. You think
  they're fun and sweet, but watch out for that stray tail
  spike! Down, gaston, down, boy! No, not on top of Momma!
