Paleontologists in South America have found the fossilized remains of a 13 foot crocodile, Dakosaurus andiniensis. What makes this find so interesting is that the crocodile’s head is shaped more in line with dinosaurs (and no, this was not a dinosaurs since no dinosaur ever lived in the water). Here is a nifty artists rendition of “Godzilla” (and no, the pterosaurs in the picture is also not a dinosaur, but a flying reptile). Here is a picture of the actual fossilized skull. The teeth of this crocodile also stand out. Typically a crocodile would have many small teeth. This crocodile had 4″ long teeth there were serated which is more in line with land dwelling dinosaurs.
