  1. Jurassic Park 3. Steven Spielberg's fav dinosaur . Still remember the fight scene between T Rex and Spinosaurus. Epic !!

  2. 1:29 Onchopristis: Oh God, let all of this end! Let me suffer for one last time before I meet this fate! Oh Spinosaurus, what did I do for you to eat me? Is it that you’re hungry? Or my future will kill you for revenge of my friends?
    Spinosaurus: Come on Onchopristis, it’s time for the sacrifice. *throws Onchopristis to the ground*
    Onchopristis: You better not hold me down just for a human that doesn’t deserve to have you as a guard. Next time, when I turn into a Megalodon the whole world will bow down to ME! *gets held down*
    Spinosaurus: Sorry Onchopristis. If you turn into a Megalodon I would be long dead by then. *kills Onchopristis* No one messes with the Emperor. *devours Onchopristis*

    2:17 Rugops: Oh hi there, your Majesty…
    Spinosaurus: What is it?
    Rugops: All the dinosaurs I tried to hunt ran away from my sight… I want to consider having a bite of that Onchopristis you killed as a sacrifice for Lady Mary Audrey Brown. I’m starving…
    Spinosaurus: Alright then, we’re brothers after all.
    Rugops: May God bless your kindness.
    Spinosaurus: Glad you like it, bro. There’s plenty of which where it came from.
    Rugops: No, I just need one piece of that… *eats a part of Onchopristis and walks away*
