Crocodile fossil found in Cuba cave

4 posts in this topic

La Habana - Cavers in central Cuba found the remains of what is believed to be a 20-million-year-old, 10-metre-long crocodile.

The team from the Speleological Society of Cuba also found bones believed to be from prehistoric dugongs, the Escambray daily reported.

The remains, thought to date back to the Miocene Epoch were found in the Cayajana river about 350km east of Havana.

Any ideas on what species this croc was? There was Purussaurus, which lived in South America at around the same time (20 million years ago) which was 50-60ft and up to 20 tons.
