CRETACEOUS CROCODILES

Beri's Dinosaur World presents an article titled
"Collosal Cretaceous Crocodiles", a study about the
growth rate of these reptiles and how they compare to
those of the dinosaurs. This article reports now that
growth patterns across a series of Deinosuchus
skeletons show rates of increase that are pretty much in
line with those of smaller crocodylians and that the
animal's Brobdingnagian size was indeed reached via
an extended period of development.
