I was going through some articles that I've collected over the years,
and I found one that I'd clipped from Omni magazine some years back. It
was in regards to a truly massive South American crocodilian named
Purussaurus. The article is short, and gives some preliminary
measurements (40' long, 8' tall, 10-12 tons), and was touted as among
the Earth's largest carnivores. It lived and died as recently as 8
million years ago.
Something like this intrigued me, and I was wondering if anyone might
know anything else about the animal. At the date of the article, only
the massive skull had been found. Thanks for any info...
