Simosuchus sciifii (name meaning "SciiFii's Simosuchus"), also known as the pug crocodile, plant-eating crocodile, or herbivorous crocodile, is a species of terrestrial notosuchid crocodilian that originally lived in what is now Madagascar during the Late Cretaceous and was once extinct, but has since been brought back from extinction by SciiFii and now lives in Cretaceous Park located in Sacramento, California. As its common names suggests, unlike most other crocodilians, which are normally carnivorous, it is a peaceful herbivore that mainly feeds on fruits, leaves, roots, tubers, ferns, horsetails, and plants that live near waters. Due to its short tail and a stout body, Simosuchus sciifii is not built to live in water, even though it is known to swim, it is a poor swimmer in comparison with carnivorous crocodilians. It has short yet strong claws that allow Simosuchus sciifii to dig burrows, for safety from predators and/or to lay eggs. Due to the armor all over its body, it is safe from most predators, with the exception of carnivorous crocodilians and some strong-jawed carnivorous dinosaurs (both avian and non-avian species). Due to its tame nature, herbivorous diet unlike most crocodiles, and being easy to keep, feed, breed, and clean, lots of exotic reptile pet owners/stores demanded SciiFii to sell some Simosuchus sciifii as pets, and ever since SciiFii approved the request, Simosuchus sciifii is a now a common pet throughout the world, however, as a result of some careless pet owners, some of the Simosuchus sciifii have established breeding populations and became invasive species through Mexico, United States (California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, Utah, Colorado, Wyoming, Texas, Hawaii, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia), Japan, China, India, Great Britain, New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, South Africa, France, Germany, and Spain, being a fast breeder, as well as being tolerant to the cold, heat, and lots of predators, and both humid and arid climates, due to possible genetic tweaking in some genes of Simosuchus sciifii.
