Yeetosaurus is cool, but now I can't get the image of a buffalo with a spino-style sail out of my head.


Lobo0084

The spine and horns and us imagining a thinner hide with feathers or scales, and that's that's diabolical demon to future archeologists.

Oh good it’s deviljho

You can run but you cant hide

Angry pickle is ready to yeet!

Murder pickle

This is convergent evolution

Reminds me a Bit of the Demon Pickle from Monster Hunter


JPGer

was looking for someone to say this


TheDarkKnobRises

It looks like an otter fucked a pitbull


dragonmoto

Or... Vice versa...


GilloGraeme

Looks like an angry potato


HAHAHAFUNNYSKELETON

I mean … it IS possible. Edit: Why must life be so unfair? We just want buffalo spinosaurs.


shockaLocKer

No, sadly, it is not. As much as we would comically love it to happen, Spinosaurus's spines aren't aligned in a way that permits these kinds of strong muscle attachments. Additionally, its skull is too thinly built for this kind of grip as well.


Majike03

Huh. I actually saw an educational video about dinosaur reconstruction recently that basically said the same thing. Wish I could find it, but it was one of those random YT recommendations from awhile ago Edit: After scouring my "liked" videos, I finally [found it](https://youtu.be/Ig_7ShBEWJg?t=7m45s)! Pretty interesting video in general about hump-backed dinos in general


MrSeanaldReagan

Also it’s joint bones (like on the shoulders) don’t look nearly robust enough to support muscle like that


DarZhubal

In general, we tend to "shrink wrap" dinosaurs. We tend to assume their skin clung tight to their bones and that they didn't have large muscles or fat deposits, much like most modern lizards. So while this concept may not be able to apply to the Spino because of its specific skeletal features, these types of scenarios are actually very possible throughout dinosaurs as a whole.


Joe_Mency

Yeah. Its totally possible for there to have been a relative of the spinosaurus that evolved to be more like a buffalo, and we just don't know about it because of where it lived not having good fossil preservation


nowthenight

no it isn't lol


QyluxPlayzYT

New spino tlc? The yeeter? /s

Yeetasaurus


FetusGoesYeetus

The main reason people think it was a sail and not a hump is because it probably lived in a warm, coastal environment. A hump wouldn't be too much use there. Buffalo need it to use their heads as a snow plow and camels need it for fat storage, but a spinosaurus wouldn't need either of that. With that said, since nobody was around then to take notes, we don't know for sure.

Absolute unit


Duudyboi

This belongs not only here, but on r/memes and other meme subs. This is funny as shit man


VirtualAd6007

r/memes is fucking shit, so is r/dankmemes it also does *not* belong here


dragonmoto

Lolol who whistled all follow in your kibble farm?


VirtualAd6007

nobody, r/memes is a dumpster fire of a subreddit with the least funny memes ever placed on this earth


Duudyboi

Bro you've been on reddit 2 months, hold your judgement until you have a tad more experience. R/memes isn't great, but there are plenty of funny as hell memes. There are plenty of shit memes, but if you don't want them, sort by hot.


VirtualAd6007

i’ve been here for 3 years actually, this is a new account. r/memes has never even made me chuckle


Duudyboi

Well then I got no words for you.

VirtualAd6007

this is ark how?


dragonmoto

Cause imagine if you will... That if the spino in ark had massive neck muscles instead of a sail and would use said muscles to yeet lesser dinos around the map... It would be a hoot!


VirtualAd6007

it would really not


dragonmoto

Lololol fair enough. Have a nice day!


Redrundas

Its tail would need to be a lot longer for it to not fall over forward if this was the case lol


ktfcaptain

We need the ability to cross-breed…


Delta_Spartan

This was once theorized back when it was believed that Spinosaurus was a desert dweller. Once it was discovered that the areas in Africa that Spinosaurus lived in used to be marshlands and swamps the hump theory died as a sail would be more useful in such environments than a hump.


LagiLos14

You literally just drew Deviljho


LeoTheYutyrannus

interesting theory


thedoggoman1932

Absolute C H O N K E R


PhantomOpus

That's a bison, not a buffalo right?

Hey siri, how do you unsee something?

RnbwTurtle

This isn't how their skeleton works It's not even funny Don't spread misinformation like this

r/woooosh


NecRobin

I've seen a video explaining how we tend to illustrate dinosaurs too thin so you've got my support
