This is not a new idea, and has been proposed several times in view of the erect
gait and 'active air' of the earliest crocodylomorphs - _Sphenosuchus_ and such.
Hans Sues, for example, implies it in the evolution section of the Merehurst
"I am a god - not _the_ god, a god"
"Are you a god?"
"Say yes Ray"
"- - no"
