The largest ever sea-dwelling crocodile has been uncovered in Tunisia. With a body longer than a great white shark and a skull was as big as a person, its name, Machimosaurus rex, (fighting lizard-king) seems more than appropriate.
“There’s no question this animal had a terrific diet. Its teeth were designed for crushing hard material,” says co-discoverer Federico Fanti of the University of Bologna. “Whatever ends up too close to the jaws is supper in one way or another. Considering such a powerful bite, he was not that picky.”
