Deinosuchus

About Deinosuchus

This frightening crocodile is one of the largest to have ever lived on Earth. Like modern crocodiles, Deinosuchus probably waited quietly in water, watching for its prey. When an unsuspecting animal got too close, Deinosuchus would leap out of the water and drag its victim in, using long, dull teeth. Crocodiles are one of the most successful animals to have ever lived on Earth. Because they have changed very little since the age of the dinosaurs, they are often referred to as living fossils.
