Crocodile Meets Godzilla — A Swimming Dino Bigger Than T. Rex

There once was a place on Earth so overrun with giant, meat-eating predators that even a Tyrannosaurus rex would have been nervous. One predator there was even bigger than T. rex, and scientists now say it's apparently the only aquatic dinosaur ever found.

The swimming monster is called Spinosaurus aegyptiacus. It was 50 feet long — longer than a school bus, and 9 feet longer than the biggest T. rex.

A replica of its skeleton is being assembled in a cavernous room at the National Geographic Society in Washington D.C.
