Eogyrinus

About Eogyrinus

This huge amphibian lived hundreds of millions of years ago. Its size would be similar to a large modern day crocodile. Eogyrinus, who lived during a time when much of the earth was covered with warm humid rain forests and swamps, probably moved on land by a combination of pushing with its short legs, and squirming its long body back and forth. Eogyrinus had no trouble moving in water and was well suited to a wet environment. This animal probably preyed on unsuspecting fish.
