The spinosaur was uncovered in Niger, Africa, on what Dr Sereno said was\par
an amazing expedition which brought away 20 tonnes of fossils and rock.\par
The spinosaur specimen was found within 80 kilometres of the site of the\par
dwarf crocodile skull also displayed at the AAAS meeting.\par

a formal classification but which has been dubbed the "duck croc" because\par
of its unusual jaws.\par
