Yet, another discovery of a behemothic creature that lived and swam across the seas 135 million years ago! It is a large sea-dwelling crocodile that lived in the middle of the dinosaur era. Found in what is now Argentina, it is different from the ones we see today. It is more like that of Tyrannosaurus rex. This one possessed a snout that was short and stout and its foot-and-a-half-long jaws held 52 large teeth with saw-tooth edges. It is the type that tears chunks of flesh out of other large creatures. This discovery is being announced online on the Web site of the journal ‘Science’. The crocodile may not be the largest of all crocodiles, nor was it the only one that swam the seas, but it is notable for being so sharply distinct from other crocodiles, atleast the ones we witness today. At the time that Dakosaurus lived, the area where the fossil was found was far to the north and far underwater, the bottom of a deep tropical bay connected to the Pacific Ocean.
