Scientists: the ancestor of crocodiles was herbivorous and similar to an ostrich



It inhabited mainly in North America during the Triassic period – about 205 million years ago. Moreover, although his remains were first discovered in 1940, science has just begun to make any significant discoveries.

Not the least role in this is played by the fact that the fossil has survived to this day in a rather poor condition.

Despite this, scientists found that the body of the ancestor of crocodiles was light, while he had a long neck and large eyes. Due to this, the animal strongly resembled modern struss.

The main “delicacy” of the dinosaur was vegetation, which it pecked with its beak from the ground. But he could also tear off and gnaw fragments of soft plant material – young shoots or ferns.
