Spinophorosaurus is an African sauropod dinosaur
Spinophorosaurus was one of the many creatures that came through a satellite anomaly that Andy opened. It stomped around Tring in the UK, crushing and stomping people and the team had to try to stop it along with all the other creatures. (Episode 1.10)
Most of the sauropods of the late Jurassic period didn't have much in the way of defensive armament; that was a development that awaited the titanosaurs of the later Cretaceous. A weird exception to this rule was Spinophorosaurus, which had a Stegosaurus-like "thagomizer" (i.e., bundle of symmetrical spikes) on the end of its long tail, probably to deter the tyrannosaurs and raptors of its African habitat. Aside from this odd feature, Spinophorosaurus is notable for being one of the few African sauropods of its time, which may shed some light on the evolution and worldwide migration of these giant herbivores.
