There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

The same video showing sarcosuchus against Paralititan, a very big African sauropod... Sorry, but it's the french version:

Rhamphosuchus  was a pretty large croc..or false gharial.  It might have been the largest croc of all time at 15-18 meters long.  There is some dispute with some new estimates saying it was only 11 meters long but still a large croc.

I hadn't noticed before that Purussaurus lived during the early age of mammals rather than in the dinosaur's time.

@epaiva :

About #52: How did this Thorbjarnarson's crocodile disappear ? Because of the growing scarcity of its big preys ? Was its behaviour the same as the extant Nile croc's one ? Have there been one, two or several glaciation era within Africa at the end of the Pleistocene period that could explain the megafauna extinction ? And then this one was replaced by the extant fauna ?

I ask you that because when we, in the "general public", speak about Quaternary era we're thinking of Europa, Siberia, North America, i.e. some still cold countries... But never or very scarcely of Africa or other actual tropical and equatorial regions ...
