SYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) -- A new species of crocodile which lived 40
million years ago has been discovered in tropical Australia, filling a
gap in the evolution of the prehistoric-looking crocodile, researchers
said on Thursday.

Two nearly complete skulls and a lower jaw of a new species of crocodile
that belonged to a group called Mekosuchinae were unearthed by miners in
the northern state of Queensland, said Australia's Monash University
researcher Lucas Buchanan."
