The skull of a reptile called Shieldcroc that lived over 95 million years ago and was originally found in Morocco. It's skull was five feet long. There doesn't show a time about when the skull was uncovered but the reptile did live over 95 million years ago. Shieldcroc is the earliest African ancestor of the modern crocodile. Researchers believe that this reptile's body was 25 to 35 feet long.

I think this story was very interesting because there was a crocodile living on land and in water. The crocodile was also eating plants which is also another interesting thing because they only eat meat now. Sometthing that is very crazy and pretty unbeleivable is that my uncle in fact has 2 crocodiles in his basement that he keeps in a clear box, like something you would see at a zoo. I think this was a very interesting article and enjoyed reading it a lot.
