A mass extinction that occurred over 200 million years ago, killed off a slew of huge predators, including hefty beasts that looked like crocodiles and enormous armadillos, according to new research.

Some of the prehistoric predators - animals known collectively as the early pseudosuchians - likely preyed on certain dinosaurs, which later evolved some of impressive characteristics of the ancient pseudosuchians. Those included features like sturdy body armour and strong tails for whacking enemies.

So the ancestors of modern crocodiles and alligators died off and the dinosaurs survived, and all because of a huge climate change.

And 65 million years ago dinosaurs died off and the ancestors of crocodiles and alligators survived, and all because of a huge climate change.
