Pending further discoveries, Spinosaurus was the world's largest carnivorous dinosaur. Full-grown adults outweighed Tyrannosaurus Rex by about a ton and Giganotosaurus by about half a ton. Since so few Spinosaurus fossils are extant, it's possible that other individuals were even larger.

Chasmosaurus is a genus of ceratopsiddinosaur from the Upper Cretaceous Period of North America. Its name means 'opening lizard', referring to the large openings (fenestrae) in its frill (Greekchasma meaning 'opening' or 'hollow' or 'gulf' and sauros meaning 'lizard'). With a length of 5–6 metres (16–20 ft) and a weight of 3.6 tonnes (4.0 short tons), Chasmosaurus was a ceratopsian of average size. Like all ceratopsians, it was purely herbivorous

The Scabious Fairy, by Cicely Mary Barker. The Scabiosa  is a genus in the teasel family. Scabiosa is a Latin name meaning scurfy, mangy, or rough, and/or from the Latin scabies, "the itch," which the rough (scurfy) leaves might have been used to cure. It is also called a pincushion flower, I think because 'scabious flower' is not a very pretty name!
