‘Crocodile terror’ Cretan crushed banana-sized dinosaurs



A great Cretan crocodile hunted relatives dinosaurs, slicing them using powerful jaws lined with “banana-sized” teeth, researchers say.

Known as Deinosuchus, meaning “terrible crocodile” in Greek, this lineage of crescent reptiles certainly lived up to its name. They were among the largest predators in their flowing habitats of North America, where they lived between 75 million and 82 million years ago. And with bodies at least 33 meters (10 meters) long, they can subdue almost any animal that wanders within reach – including dinosaurs.
