Spinosaurus: Lost Giant of the Cretaceous
Nizar Ibrahim, Paleontologist
Sun May 1, 2pm
Mon May 2, 8pm
Tue May 3, 8pm
Over 50 feet long and with dagger-like teeth, Spinosaurus was the largest predator on Earth. Although it was a giant among dinosaurs, its fossils eluded scientists for decades. Now, National Geographic Emerging Explorer Nizar Ibrahim and other paleontologists have reconstructed this prehistoric giant that was bigger than T. rex. But almost as amazing as Spinosaurus itself is the story he’ll share of how this monster was rediscovered years after being found—and lost.
