AQUATIC HUNTING

Some carnivorous dinosaurs developed a taste for fish and in some cases adopted an amphibious lifestyle. One of the most prominent fish-eaters were the Spinosaurs such as Baryonyx and Suchomimus. Spinosaurus itself was recently discovered to live and hunt like a crocodile, hunting in water and sometimes coming on dry land. As a group, Spinosaurs had specialized equipment that were well suited for hunting fish. Their clawed hands were perfect for scooping fish out of the water while their cone-shaped teeth and long snouts were perfect for gripping slippery fish. One of the predators in my new dinosaur book will have some Spinosaur in it, which will allow it to employ amphibious hunting.
