Scientists have found bones belonging to what could be Europe’s largest ever land-based dinosaur in the UK.

The remains of the two-legged, crocodile-faced spinosaurid dinosaur were found on the Isle of Wight.

The dino lived 125 million years ago and would have measured more than 10 metres long, with sharp teeth and claws and a long tail.

Experts say it was so ferocious it would have been able to bite other dinosaurs in two!
