Re: Mammal-like crocodilian described



There is, I believe, a group of Tertiary crocs that are considered to be at least facultatively bipedal, although I am unfamiliar with the details as to why that is thought to be so.

It's pretty amazing to consider how ecologically diverse Mesozoic crocs were

to extant relatives.  One wonders what early Cenozoic faunas would have looked 
like
if some of these croc lineages had survived the K-Pg extinction event...
