Apologies; I feel the same way when I hear the other spinosaurs getting called
Allow me to, once again, rephrase what I said.
_Suchomimus tenerensis_ was a very specialized baryonychine who's skull anatomy
would have lended itself well to a piscivorous existence (more so than the
other spinosaurs) and is probably the *worst* archetype for a spinosaur.
Hope that comes off a little better
