Engineering techniques have shown an unusual British dinosaur Baryonyx walkeri fed on fish, despite it looking like a meat-eater. The dinosaur's skull bent and stretched in the same way as the skull of today's fish-eating crocodiles, even though it had clear differences in structure.

The early Cretaceous dinosaur was found in Surrey and lived at a time when the area was warmer and had lagoons. The research is published in the Journal of Vertebrate Palaeontology.
