What were Cretaceous crocodiles like?
Crocodiles were abundant in the Cretaceous period. They were relatively comparable to modern crocodiles—however, prehistoric crocs were generally much larger than those that live today. Their diets, habitats, and hunting practices have stayed largely consistent throughout time (minus eating dinosaurs, of course!).
Crocodiles have one of the most successful body plans of any animal in Earth's history. They evolved from a group called Phytosaurs, then gradually morphed to resemble modern crocs in the Jurassic. Those that arose in later in the Cretaceous were the most recognizable by today's standards.
Each purchase includes a glass top display box and an informational card about the fossil.
