The fossilised tooth of a prehistoric crocodile has been recorded as the largest of its kind found in the UK.

The 2in (5.5cm) tooth was dredged from the seabed near Chesil Beach, Dorset.

It belonged to an ancient relative of modern crocodiles, known as Dakosaurus maximus.

The artist has given it a rather interesting face.

And it wasn't even the top predator for its time!

Looks a bit like my ex-mother in law.  Same size of teeth too.  (She WAS a top predator for her time)
