Sarcosuchus imperator.

Sarcosuchus imperator, a large extinct prehistoric crocodile, survived in Africa in the early Cretaceous (about 112 million years ago) and belonged to the extinct Pholidosauridae family of Crocodile Superorder. It has no close relationship with modern crocodiles. This crocodile is usually referred to as "Emperor Crocodile" on the Chinese network, but literally its genus name Sarcosuchus means "muscle crocodile". The word imperator has the meaning of "emperor", so the term "emperor muscle crocodile" is more rigorous.
As early as the 1940s and 1960s, a series of fragments of the crocodile were unearthed. Among them, a skull fossil unearthed in Nigeria in 1964 made the crocodile famous and made it a famous celebrity paleontology. In old domestic publications, the crocodile is often called the largest crocodile in the Mesozoic era. It’s 12 meters long and weighs more than 8 tons. It’s a monster. However, after a team led by Paul Sereno, an American scholar known as Professor Crocodile, found more crocodile fossils in Africa at the end of the twentieth century, people’s estimates of the size of the species were getting lower and lower. Adult crocodiles are about 9 meters long and weigh more than 3 tons — still a giant crocodile, three times the weight of today’s giant Bay crocodiles; but they certainly aren’t among the best of all prehistoric crocodiles. In terms of body structure, the skull of the crocodile is rather narrow, similar to the Malay crocodile in modern crocodiles, and its teeth are smaller than its own size, which indicates that the crocodile should mainly feed on freshwater fish in its habitat. However, considering that modern alligators also have records of hunting deer and wild boars, it is not difficult for them to hunt small and medium-sized dinosaurs on the basis of their large size.[doge]

Suchomimus is a large fish-eating mammal-footed dinosaur belonging to the family Echinosauridae, and may have serious "business competition" with the monarch muscle crocodile. Although the skull of the crocodile is not strong in the crocodile, the crocodile-like fisherman’s thin mouth seems to be even worse, so the conflict between them probably ended in a crocodile-like defeat.[doge]
