Recreation of life appearance of the new species of crocodile Ogresuchus furatus (Aina and Agnès Amblás / ICP)

A study led by Albert G. Sellés, researcher at the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP), describes the new species Ogresuchus furatus from fossil remains found in Coll de Nargó (Catalonia, Spain). It was a quite small crocodile that could have fed on dinosaur hatchlings. The fossil was stolen shortly before its extraction in 2013 and recovered few weeks later thanks to the intervention of the Mossos d'Esquadra, the Catalan police.
