Prehistoric link to modern day crocs discoveredMikey 3 comments
Palaeontologists in Brazil have unearthed a fossil they claim is the missing link to modern day crocodiles.
The 1.7 metre long fossil is approximately 80 million years old.
Said Ismar de Souza Carvalho:
"This is scientifically important because the specimen literally is the link between more primitive crocodiles that lived in the era of the dinosaurs 80-85 million years ago and modern species,"
