Baryonyx

Baryonyx

Romaing the gorgraphic reigions which later became England and Spain, Baryonyx roamed the earth during the Early Creatcious perios, around 125 million yearsw ago.

It's almost certain that this 10-metre-long carnivore enjoyed a diet of fish after scientists found fish scales deep in the belly of a Baronyx fossil.

It's finely-serrated teeth and mouth shape were very similar to that of today's crocodillian species.
