Sarcosuchus was a very large crocodilian. This shows that Sarcosuchus was able to reach a maximum body size not only greater than previously estimated [1] but also greater than that of the Miocene Rhamphosuchus, [6] the Late Cretaceous Deinosuchus [7] [8] and the Miocene Purussaurus. During the middle Cretaceous period, about 100 million years ago, northern Africa was home to two of the biggest reptiles ever to walk the earth. Rhamphosuchus lived around the same time as Purussaurus, but was slightly smaller, had a more gharial-like snout and lived in India.

We're talking average. Sarcosuchus and Deinosuchus had similar proportions, but both were geologically much older, dating from the Early and Late Cretaceous, respectively. Deinosuchus (/ ˌ d aɪ n ə ˈ sj uː k ə s /) is an extinct genus of crocodilian related to the modern alligator that lived 82 to 73 million years ago (Ma), during the late Cretaceous period.The name translates as "terrible crocodile" and is derived from the Greek deinos (δεινός), "terrible", and soukhos (σοῦχος), "crocodile". [9] But, the Bear is massive too. It is one of the largest ever crocodile-like reptiles that walked the earth. The first "crocodile-like reptiles" — the Crocodylomorpha — which split from the bird-line of archosaurs — the group of reptiles that include dinosaurs, pterosaurs and birds — about 230 million years ago, in the Late Triassic, looked somewhat like modern crocodilians. It grew to 12 metres and may have weighed 8 tonnes.

What made Sarcosuchus truly impressive was its dinosaur-worthy weight: more than 10 tons for those 40-foot-long senior citizens described in the previous slide, and perhaps seven or eight tons for the average adult. Sarcosuchus was a huge crocodiloform, growing nearly as long It had 132 huge, conical teeth inside its 6-foot (1.8-meter) long head, and could easily crush bone with its powerful jaws.
