Purussaurus 1

Purussaurus is one of the largest known crocodiles/gator that lived in South America during the Miocene era. The large size and estimated strength of this animal appears to have allowed it to include a wide range of prey in its diet, making it an apex predator in its ecosystem. As an adult, it would have preyed upon large to very large vertebrates such as mammals, turtles and other crocodiles of the time.
