suchomimus Caulkicephalus image


The name Suchomimus means crocodile-mimic and Suchomimus belonged to the family of theropod dinosaurs known as the spinosaurids. At about 11m long it would have been a formidable hunter, but its jaw, which was very similar in shape to that of a modern crocodile hence its name suggests that it would also have grabbed fish from lakes or rivers.

The pterosaur Caulkicephalus had an extraordinary jaw with protruding teeth that would almost certainly have been suitable for catching slippery fish. Some pterosaur track-ways even suggest that they may have swum. In flight Caulkicephalus had an estimated wing span of about 5m.
