This photograph was taken from behind the Suchomimus mount. The perspective is a bit bad, but this is a unique shot that takes into account and manifests some of Suchomimus' other enigmatic characteristics. For instance, this photo shows the strong, powerful hind legs of Suchomimus. In life Suchomimus would have been a biped, walking on two legs. 

This photograph also shows part of the large, long tail of the dinosaur. This tail would have been stiffened in life, helping to balance the large, sturdily built Suchomimus. Suchomimus likely lived in a swamp environment, sharing its habitat with crocodiles, other dinosaurs, and large fish, some which grew to over ten feet in length. These fish were likely the main staple of the Suchomimus diet.
