Sarcosuchus

Sarcosuchus (meaning "flesh crocodile" and commonly called "SuperCroc") was a relative of crocodiles that lived during the Cretaceous period 112 million years ago in what is now Africa.

Sarcosuchus is one of the largest giant crocodile-like reptiles that ever lived. It is believed to have been 11.2–12.2 metres long or 37–40 ft and weighed up to 8 tons (8.75 tons) and has a 50 to 60 year life span!

It is believed that Sarcosuchus ate large fish and turtles of the Cretaceous. Its primary prey may have been large animals like the smaller dinosaurs.
