Thecodont questions



Thecodonts.  Those guys leave me scratching my head sometimes.  Like 
now.

1) Why did Postosuchus k. have that massive supraorbital ridge?  Has 
anyone hypothesized yet?  This wasn't typical of Rauisuchids, was it? 
If not, why did  P. develop these?

2) How are the forelimbs of Desmatosuchus best described (choose 
one):

-a bit longer than hindlimbs
-same length as hindlimbs
-a bit shorter than hindlimbs
-much shorter than hindlimbs

Thanks,
Larry
