Time For the Giant Heron Spinosaurid Analogy to Bite the Dust Part 1
More to come for sure in many future posts but I just wanted to leave this here: an abstract for the Berlin SVP meeting looking at Spinosaurid behavioral ecology through the lens of extant fish eating tetrapods. I concur with some thoughts - lack of a strong signal for heron type stalking - and disagree with other thoughts - the use of the claws for "pinning" prey against the substrate as their primary role.
