The pygmy terradile (Gracilisuchus modernus) is a species of tiny pseudosuchian (a group which includes the ancestors of crocodilians) that originally lived in what is now Argentina during the Middle Triassic and was once extinct, but has since been brought back from extinction by SciiFii and introduced to modern Argentina to help boost biodiversity. It is one of the smallest known crocodilian relative, growing only to be around 20-30 centimeters long and weigh about 1.31 kilograms (2.9 lb), about the size of an average-sized rat. It is almost entirely insectivorous, feeding mostly on insects, spiders, scorpions, the toxic millipedes (due to the pygmy terradile's strong immune against the toxic arthropods), centipedes, and even the poisonous pillbugs/woodlice, but has been known to prey on tiny lizards and mammals at times. The conservation status of the pygmy terradile is Least Concern due to successful conservation efforts, the pygmy terradile's wide range (which has since expanded to Brazil, Chile, Peru, Bolivia, and Colombia due to the increasing populations of pygmy terradiles), and its ability to adapt to life in the cities and suburbs.
