The Spines are much different in this reconstruction.

In the Nat geo article,it is mentioned as ------- The largest predatory dinosaur ever – T. rex is toast!

I don't see how T. Rex is toast when Spinosaurus is just 6 tonnes.If that size of Spino is accurate then it will make it as the longest theropod but weighs similar or slightly less than T.Rex and few other large Theropods. And i never believed Spino was 20 feet tall and up to 20 tonnes. Could be more like 16 feet.

That drawing seen for Spinosaurus half body in the Nat Geo Article where the thickness of it's tail is almost the size of it's body which seems to be inaccurate.
