A Port Lympne spokesman said: "The Spinosaurus, a beast too large for the biggest trailer at Port Lympne, had to be lifted by a crane and walked through the reserve encountering rhino and gorillas along its way.

"Now proudly positioned in the Dinosaur Forest the Spinosaurus is ready to set hearts racing."

It will sit alongside among other dinosaurs of different kinds.

The Spinosaurus was accompanied into the forest.
