For a long time, the only known find of a spinosaurus was the specimen exhibited in a museum in Munich, where it proved to be a real crowd-puller. As it was destroyed in the Second World War, very little research had been done on this giant predatory therapod, and it was only in 2009, after some detective work, that scientists were able to track down the bones and teeth of another spinosaurus. Based on these finds, they were able to reconstruct a skeleton that was shown in the Spinosaurus touring exhibition at the Museum für Naturkunde alongside the Museum’s own original fossils.
