Product Details

9" Long Kaprosuchus - Realistic Dinosaur Replica

by Papo

The Kaprosuchus, who lived in the middle of the Cretaceous period is often called the Boar Croc because of its three sets of teeth that look like the tusks of a wild board. The jaws of this mahajangasuchid crocodyliform feature notches to allow the tusk like teeth to fit. The Kaprosuchus features an armored snout, leading paleontologists to believe it was used as a battering ram to attack its prey before snapping it in its strong jaw. It is believed that the Kaprosuchus was a terrestrial predator measuring approximately 11-20 feet long who resembled a big cat with armor. It is suggested by the eye shape that this dinosaur had 3D vision (stereoscopic vision). Everything we know about the Kaprosuchus is because of a single skull fossil discovered in Africa by paleontologist Paul Sereno and his team in 2009. This crocodyliform from the Sahara is a new addition to the dino world and encourages more interest in these crocodiles of the past!
