Image: Crocodilian attacking a dinosaur
SuperCroc (Sarcosuchus imperator) confronts a terrestrial rival, Suchomimus tenerensis, in this illustration. Known for its conical teeth, distinct vertebrae, and foot-long (0.3-meter-long) armor plates, Sarcosuchus was a colossal ten-ton crocodilian that probably terrorized middle-Cretaceous Africa.
