Shown here is the 'upper body' of Suchomimus. In this photograph the long, narrow, yet powerful skull, the sturdy and long forearms, and the awe-inspiring thumb claw are present. The skull of Suchomimus was nearly five feet long, and was about an eighth (1/8) the size of its body. Unlike many other large theropods, T. rex comes to mind, the forearms of Suchomimus were long, large, and powerfully built. Equipped with claws, they were likely used to catch Suchomimus' food, which was probably large fish.
