Ichthyovenator (meaning “Fish Hunter”) is a genus of spinosaurid from the Early Cretaceous of Laos. It was described in 2012 by Ronan Allain and three of his colleagues, and they named the type species I. laosensis after the country it was found in. It was placed in the clade Baryonycinae, along with Suchomimus and Baryonyx. It was the first spinosaur found in Asia. It had two separate sails, unlike mot spinosaurids that had only one. The length of Ichthyovenator is roughly 27 feet(8 meters).
