Cretaceous Fossil CrocodileDescription: This is a fine example of a jaw section from a crocodyliform of the Trematochampsidae. Two teeth are present, while several alveoli (sockets) are to be seen as well. The wider section when viewed from above shos this is from the anteriormost portion of the jaw. Notice the diagnostic texture of the bone evident in this fine specimen, as well as the good preservation of the enamel, making for a wonderful example of this rarely-seen Archosaur.
