This is the first Episode in a Series on Spinosaurid Dinosaurs--their biology, evolution, and scientific history. We begin our journey in England where in 1983 an amateur fossil collector found the skeleton of Baryonyx, one of the most amazing dinosaur discoveries of the 20th century.

I am so sorry that this has taken so long. I appreciate all of the emails, tweets, and comments expressing concern over the lack of activity on the channel. Please forgive me, life has a way of getting in the way of things. I hope this series will make up for it. ENJOY!
