Correct me if I am wrong, but I think Karongasaurus is a misprint, and is actually suppose to be Karongasuchus, a crocodile illustrated in the picture. Malawisaurus (sp?) is the sauropod in the picture <<
Well, since you asked…you are wrong : ) Malawisuchus is the crocodile I wonder if the name Karongasaurus was the first name for Malawisaurus? It was found in the Karonga district, which might be were the name came from. I suppose the people to ask is either Carr or Jacobs.
