Here’s something you didn’t see in The Land Before Time: An international research team of scientists has confirmed the existence of the world’s first semiaquatic dinosaur, in today’s edition of the journal Science.

The dinosaur was discovered to have outsized even the Tyrannosaurus rex by nine feet. The study’s lead author Nizar Ibrahim described his work on the Spinosaurus as sort of “like studying an alien from outer space; it’s unlike any other dinosaur I have ever seen.”
