Crocodiles are often thought of as living fossils, remaining unchanged since the time of the dinosaurs. But scientists have shown this is not always the case and that 150 million years ago, their feeding mechanisms were more similar to some mammals living today, the killer whales.

I find it somewhat strange to compare the feeding habits of a terrestrial crocodile with the feeding habits of a crocodile that's obviously totally adapted to the marine environment.

But a very interesting article indeed.
