An African pelican crocodile (Stomatosuchus maximus) is a species of 10 metres (33 ft) long stomatosuchid neosuchian that originally lived from the Late Cretaceous (Cenomanian) of Egypt and was once extinct, but has since been brought back from extinction by SciiFii and introduced to the modern African rainfirests, swamps, and riverbanks to help boost biodiversity. The African pelican crocodile mainly feeds on small fish, crustaceans, and frogs, despite its size and fearsome appearance, filling the ecological niche similar to the baleen whales of the oceans. Its flattened skull has a long, flat, lid-like snout, which is lined with small, conical teeth. The mandible is toothless and its throat support a pelican-like throat pouch, hence its name, both to catch and trap the tiny prey inside. The conservation status of the African pelican crocodile is Least Concern due to successful conservation efforts and the African pelican crocodile's wide range.
