The crocodile, known as Pakasuchus, was much smaller than today’s version. An adult was about the size of a house cat, with a head less than three inches long.

Pakasuchus is one of several species of crocodiles from the time period thought to have a mammalian dental structure. The crocodiles lived in Gondwana, a landmass that included present-day Africa, Antarctica, Australia, India and South America.
