Sarcosuchus

Sarcosuchus

Sarcosuchus was one of the largest crocodiles ever lived in history (about 12 meters long, or 40 ft). Tyey lived in the Early Cretaceous in the Sahara Desert some 110 million years ago before camels and Tusken Raiders became the dominant species. In the Cretaceous, the Sahara was once filled with waterways and lush jungles. Massive dinosaurs like Paralititan were hunted by predators like Carcharodontosaurus. In the water, however, Sarcosuchus would have reigned unchallenged. Its name means “Flesh Crocodile Emperor”. S. imperator probably had a generalized diet similar to that of the Nile crocodile. A diet that would have included large terrestrial prey such as the abundant dinosaurs that lived in the same region. Photo: photos-albums.com
