Laganosuchus (SciiFii)

The head of the Nile fish-eating crocodile (Laganosuchus africanus).

The Nile fish-eating crocodile (Laganosuchus africanus) is a species of stomatosuchid crocodyliform that originally lived in what is now Niger and Morocco during the Late Cretaceous and was once extinct, but has since been brought back from extinction by SciiFii and introduced to the rainforests, swamps, and riverbanks of modern Africa to help boost biodiversity. It is a large crocodilian that can grow to be around 20 feet (6 meters) long on average. Despite its size or appearance, and hence its name, it only feeds on fish and crustaceans and can stay motionless for hours, waiting for prey to swim into its open jaws with spike-shaped teeth, and these teeth fit together tightly so that no fish or crustacean trapped in the mouth could escape. The conservation status of the Nile fish-eating crocodile is Least Concern due to successful conservation efforts and the species' wide range.
