22-foot-long crocodile discovered

6 posts in this topic

The 22-foot-long 'Tyrannosaurus Rex of the Sea' has been unveiled by scientists, who discovered and researched the remains of two giant prehistoric crocodiles.

The two crocodiles - Plesiosuchus and the 17-foot-long Dakosaurus - were top of the marine food chain as they explored the shallow waters which covered south England 150 million years ago.

Today also there are 20 foot long Crocs and those prehistoric Crocociles should not be called as 'Tyrannosaurus Rex of the Sea' since they don't match strength with T.Rex. Actually one species of the Mosasaur is called as the 'Tyrannosaurus Rex of the Sea' which is fine.

I got all excited cause I thought it was a living one, then I realized this was in the paleontology part of the forum, I had to facepalm myself. Still, a bloody amazing find, crocodilians are a favorite animal of mine.

It's amazing to think how many different forms of crocodilians lived throughout the Mesozoic...
