creature with a dinosaur's head, a crocodile's body and 10cm-long fangs has been uncovered by scientists deep in the South American wilderness.


the news says this fossil has nearly 4m in length and with jaws the length of your arm

This creature would have been a great sight to see

Here are some photos of "Godzilla" (Dakosaurus andiniensis)...

BBC: Remains of 'Godzilla' croc found

The fossilised remains of a crocodile that ruled the oceans 140 million years ago have been discovered in Patagonia. Scientists have nicknamed the creature Godzilla, because of its dinosaur-like snout and jagged teeth.

The species is formally known as Dakosaurus andiniensis

Unlike modern crocodiles, it lived entirely in the water, and had fins instead of legs. It measured 4m (13ft) from nose to tail and its jaws alone were a third of a metre (1ft) long.

Image provided by National Geographic Society shows the skull fossil of a Dakosaurus andiniensis, known as 'Godzilla', left, found in Argentina.

"This was a top predator that probably was 13 feet long and swam around using its jagged teeth to bite and cut its prey, like dinosaurs and other predatory reptiles did," Pol said.

"We are calling him the 'chico malo' — 'bad boy'" of the ocean, said Gasparini.

Interesting find but thats not really that big for 135 million years ago. I mean they found things like a 12 metre (40ft) long crocodile called Sarcosuchus, or supercroc.

"Godzilla" could have been breakfast for something like Sarcosuchus

If this turns out to be another part of Sony's marketing scheme I'm cracking skulls!

Why call it Godzilla? I'm sure their were sea dinos like twenty times as big as that one? Maybe they shoulda called it Godzuki! (aka minya, aka godzillas comic sidekick and nephew)
