AUSTRALIAN FOSSIL CROCODILES

Crocodiles are an ancient group of archosaurs,
first appearing in the fossil record in the Late Triassic over 200 million years ago.
Unlike their modern day cousins, the ancient crocodile was as agile on land as they were in water.
The largest was over 12 metres and weighed 8 tonnes.
