Suchomimus tenerensis fishing
A five ton, Early Cretaceous theropod dinosaur of the species Suchomimus tenerensis snags a shark from a lush estuary near the ancient Tethys Ocean in what today is Northern Africa.
Suchomimus tenerensis was well-armed with long claws and a long, crocodile-like snout with dozens of teeth. Given these distinctly crocodilian features, it's believed that this dinosaur, like modern day crocodiles, dined largely on fish.
