An awesome new dino, the Kaprosuchus will soon be visiting your village!
Here is a reconstructed image from Wikipedia - which shows the awesome bite this fellow has.
You can learn more about this awesome prehistoric creature on this Wikipedia page. Its name means "boar crocodile" from the Greek kapros=boar and souchos=crocodile. This name alludes to the gigantic caniniform teeth which resemble those of a wild boar. There are two pair in the upper jaw, and a single pair in the lower jaw. It has also been given the nickname BoarCroc. The type species is K. saharicus, named after the Sahara desert where it was found in Niger. This massive eating machine easily passed 20 feet in length! In addition to the three sets of caniniform teeth, Kaprosuchus is also distinguished by the presence of rugose horns projecting from the back of the skull and long legs - which meant it could move quite fast. Kaprosuchus is a genus of crocodyliform from the Middle Cretaceous period. This awesome predator was not limited to river ecosystems, but roamed the plains of Africa where it easily chased down much larger pray with its long legs - and then those awesome teeth went to work.
Below, we see an awesome Dino-Diorama featuring a Kaprosuchus family gathered near their favorite waterhole in Cretaceous Africa. The scene may look peaceful and harmonious, but I would recommend the faint-of-heart not visit near feeding time! Those are mighty big chompers! All these dino-dioramas will eventually be housed in the Museum of Dinosaurs, Beasts and Chimera once the renovations there are complete. Here the family has grouped around their waterhole, waiting for a fierce Cretaceous thunderstorn to pass. Even a gigantic Kaprosuchus is no match for a Cretaceous lightning strike!

Here are some additional snapshots in various life stages, from egg, to baby, then toddler and teen.
The baby is absolutely adorable! The blue egg is patterned with some of the black trapezoidal scales that will protect the baby once it hatches.
