Jurassic marine crocodile identified

"A prehistoric crocodile that lived around 180 million years ago has been identified – almost 250 years after the discovery of its fossil remains. A fossil skull found in a Bavarian town in the 1770s has been recognised as the now-extinct species Mystriosaurus laurillardi, which lived in tropical waters during the Jurassic Period." - Excerpt from University of Edinburgh
