Beaky Crocs – WP#18

This one will be short, as I need to work on other things, and this has been the reason for the reduced activity of late.

"Sphenosuchian" crocodilians from the Morrison Formation; Hallopus victor is shown "sandwiched" between the holotype (large) and referred collection (small) of Macelognathus vagans. Scaled, and accurately sized.

There’s quite a lot to say about these taxa, and I intend to. For now, tiny, long-legged, apparently cursorial crocs with edentulous beaks on the mandible seen above will have to do based on what is known.

    Can I just say that they look eerily similar?
