The Kaprosuchus was named after its teeth and head shape: its name means boar crocodile. The animal lived in the Late Cretaceous period, probably primarily on land where it hunted small animals. So far only one skull of the animal has been found in the Sahara, so scientists can only guess at its actual appearance. ItÂ´s estimated that the dinosaur was around 6 m long.
A long snout and short legs means that the Kaprosuchus looked similar to a crocodile.
