Spinosaurus was NOT an aquatic pursuit predator!

In case it wasn't obvious...

At least I never thought it pursued fish in the water.

The comparisons to crocodilians stand to reason that it couldn't have chased fish. 

Hunting fish in the shallows or on the shore has always been the likelier behaviour.

The fact that it has been directly referenced in even "Bigger than T.rex" to hunt like a brown bear or a stork makes this more of a wake-up call to people who think Spinosaurus' hunting behaviour was basically a rapid submarine with a mouth and sail was wrong, and that what we thought before was correct.

That's really interesting. I'm really fascinated by the whole spinosaurus family (Spino, Baryonyx,Suchomimus,ETC).

People might try to argue the tail was meant for pursuit, when it was probably for swimming
