Fossils of what may have been Europe’s largest land-dwelling dinosaur have been discovered on the Isle of Wight in the UK.

Paleontologists at the University of Southampton in England identified the remains as being that of a creature that measured more than 10 meters in length and lived 125 million years ago.

The prehistoric fossils belonged to a bipedal, crocodile-faced, predatory spinosaurid dinosaur.

According to doctoral student Chris Barker, who led the research, it was a “huge animal”.
