He went on to claim that, if evolution were true, we would see a hybrid between a crocodile and a duck.

The largest predatory dinosaur ever was 'half-duck, half-crocodile'

According to their reconstruction, published today in Science, Spinosaurus aegyptiacus was a gigantic fish-eating, water-paddling marvel; one that, in Sereno’s words, was “a chimera — half duck, half crocodile.”
This headline right here is why the media is annoying.

It was a semi aquatic dinosaur that was 40 feet long. That does NOT make it half crocodile and half duck. Scientists need to stop trying to simplify shit like this for laymen, because too many stupid people will take it literally when it's reported like this.

It's a crocoduck like a T-rex is a croco-chicken
