King of the Crocs

Record #:
With the arrival of a newly discovered fossil of a bus-sized prehistoric crocodile, the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences discusses its own native crocodile. Deinosuchus, discovered in 1858, is a prehistoric crocodile that is commonly found throughout southeast North America. Paleontologists believe that these were once as common in North Carolina as alligators are in Florida now.
