You believe that show!

The sail MIGHT have been used for fishing, but there's no proof to suggest that.

This is more documentary BS.

The only way breaking the neural spines could kill an animal is if the spinal cord itself was damaged. The cord does NOT run through the neural spines, therefore breaking them alone would not be fatal, though it would be bloody painful I imagine.

No matter what the primary function of the extended neural spines actually was - and we don't know what that role is - it would gives Spinosaurus a huge outline, which would be intimidating for animals.

True, though It's pretty hard to imagine how Spinosaurus could even stand up when it fell to the side like depicted in Mega Beast, it would not die from the fall but because a pack of Rubops was there, death is inevitable.

The Rugops would've easily killed the Spino if he was down, but kinda hard to imagine them bringing down a 17 meter animal unless it was a very large pack of Rugops.

Spinosaurus cause its smarter, stronger, faster, had longer arms claws and snout. It's bigger too. Also most of you are wrong, Spinosaurus was a hunter and a carnivore who ate fish as an alternative food source if it couldn't kill and eat another dinosaur. It's not like its teeth were all that weak they were very strong too.

Spino ate both fish and other dinosaurs.

Also, a longer snout is a DISADVANTAGE because it means a weaker bite force.

Carch and Spino were of equal intelligence. Spino was heavier and more massive.

All in all, Carch wins 55/45.

Longer snout =/= weaker bite. Whether a general trait of weak-jawed animals or not, it does not result in a weak bite force directly. And if the tiny 1.5 meter, <15 kg thin jawed Champsosaurus can posses a bite as strong as a Grey Wolf 3 times its size, then there is every possibilty the larger and more robust skull of Spinosaurus was stronger than the very holey skull of Carcharodontosaurus.

A longer snout does result in a weaker bite if the muscle is the same, some reptilian evolved special neck muscles (such as the crocodile) to make their long jaws both accurate and powerful, It is not proven whether or not Spinosaurus possess any of these, it's improbable though. Both skulls are hollow and holey (to reduce the weight) or else the skull would be too heavy.

Bite is muscle driven, snout length is independant of muscle strength.
