The life of the crocodile's prehistoric relative, the Machimosaurus, has been revealed by a study of fossils from across Europe.

When dinosaurs were the apex land predators, a trio of huge crocodile-like animals muscled their way through European waters.

One of the three, Machimosaurus hugii, measured well over 30 feet long and is thought to have feasted on dinosaurs unlucky enough to have crossed the path of this beast, according to geoscientist Mark Young.

Reviewing the fossils, the researchers determined that three different species of Machimosaurus lived during the Jurassic in what is now Europe:

Machimosaurus buffetauti- This is a newly described species. It measured around 20 feet long and lived in what are now France and Germany.

Machimosaurus mosae- According to Young, this croc was “adapted for living in turbulent coastal waters.” Specimens are only known from northern France. It was larger than M. buffetauti, and measured 26 feet long.

Machimosaurus hugii: This was the likely dino eater and the biggest of the bunch. “It was adapted for swimming in open seas,” Young said. “Specimens have been found in Portugal, Spain and Switzerland. It was the largest croc of the Jurassic and had the most bulbous teeth of any Machimosaurus species.”…

hmm.....a 30 ft Croc, not bad.
The first ever reconstruction of how dinosaurs breathed finds that these long-extinct animals used each heavy, mucous-moistened breath to smell their surroundings and to cool their brains.

The study, published in the Anatomical Record, helps to explain why most non-avian dinosaurs had such long snouts. It also adds another dimension of life to these prehistoric animals, the last of which took its final breath around 65 million years ago.

Lead author Jason Bourke and his team used plant-eating Stegoceras as a model dinosaur since it had a particularly bony skull with fossilized bones in its nasal region still in place.…

Carcharodontosaurus by SameerPrehistorica
One of the largest carnivorous dinosaurs.It is named after its long sharp teeth with deadly serrations. It is slightly bigger than T.Rex and may be slightly bigger than Giganotosaurus. At 43 - 45 feet long and weighing 8 - 10 tonnes.

(Human - 6 feet tall)

The first known semi-aquatic dinosaur being one of the largest and certainly the longest of all carnivorous dinosaurs.

Length : 50 - 55 feet
Weight : 7 - 10 tonnes

(Human - 6 feet tall)

A person commented here before saying that the Megafauna image seems to get over 100 animals.

      That's right. It will cross 100.When there was around 50 animals,i thought to make a Megafauna image. I always liked the Megafauna images.I wanted to have an image which will have both large marine animals and large land animals which will look as real,that is whales and Dinosaurs with few other medium sized mammals/reptiles.But i can't able to find an image like that.It was quite a longtime ago.
         Now i had to make the Megafauna as i imagined. So when it came to 50 animals,i thought why not 100 as it seemed to be the perfect number and i don't have enough strength to go on for 200 and over. But the animals will be over 100 because my idea was like 100 animals which are extinct ones but the image already has 17 extant animals and still 3 more extant animals will join someday making overall as 20 extant animals.I'm not sure if that number will reach 25 or not but definitely it won't be more than 25.

         Those extant animals were needed because they are big and combining them to the extinct ones,the overall animals in the Megafauna will end at 125 or 130. Already there is a serious traffic on land,most animals can't be seen properly and nothing can be done for that since i'm using the maximum size of the document for this image in this old Photoshop.
             I will be in a terrible condition from next month.If it continues till next year, the image will be slowly updated or once again if i will have a online luck then the image will be completed somewhat faster next year.

I was always fascinated by animals,especially prehistoric animals.The bigger and powerful they were, simply amazing. As far as i know, the most interesting thing is to think about how Life began on Earth and what are the living things lived before longtime.

Animals may not able to talk like Humans but they don't judge us like many arrogant Human beings does..If you have pets,they are not going to judge you and will love you forever.
So indeed Animals > Human Beings, whether anybody agrees or not.

Beautiful Planet Earth...Still there are many mysteries in Earth itself to be explored.How many planets can there be like Earth and what are the things living there?...How big is the Universe ?...hmm..very interesting.
