Postosuchus kirkpatricki Scale

Postosuchus kirkpatricki

There was no predator more feared among the Mesozoic fauna of Petrified Forest than Postosuchus. More massive than an African lion, this intimidating beast was equipped with long hind-legs for running down and lunging at prey, and with massive jaws lined with teeth up to 7.5 cm (3 inches) long for subduing prey with a single, bone crushing bite.
