Steve Irwin, the daredevil Australian naturalist killed last year by a stingray, never wrestled a croc like this one. As long as a tourist bus and with jaws big enough to pick up a cow, "Sarcosuchus imperator" lived 110 million years ago and was surely the biggest, baddest crocodile to ever roam the earth.

his week its scales-and-blood likeness was unveiled by the man who first identified and named the amphibious predator based on fossil remains found in Niger more than 40 years ago.

Nice joke with the uh, flesh, &... Resin.

I think Steve Irwin could've taken this one.

Darn, I'm a bit disappointed. When i saw the thread title in the index page, it said "Giant prehistoric croc goes on...."

I was thinking, what? "Goes on the rampage??" i was mildly disappointed to find that it was "on display".

:unsure2:

What a crock! ^_^

Modern crocks today are about 15'. Sometimes, however, whoppers of 20'+ show up. If the 40' specimin was of average size, then their could have been the occasional 60' whopper.
