Re: Spinosaurids, the Orca's on land?
>>Spinosaurids have conical teeth, larger than Killer Whales, they to
could rip up their meal (had to at some point, at least
it?s larger meals). The teeth are more tightly packed and the largest
teeth are at the front of the jaw as oppose to toward
the middle in other theropods. Some thing to look into? Perhaps they
ripped holes into sauropods?<<
The shape of orca and spinosaur skulls are pretty different. I'd expect
orca jaws to be much more resistant to side-to-side stress than would
the jaws of spinosaurs.
