Postosuchus is the oldest reptile inhabiting Texas, Arizona and New Mexico territory about 227 million years ago. Its name means “Crocodile from Post city”.

With 4-5 metres body length, 2 metres height and 300-400 kilograms weight the reptile was one of the largest Triassic period carnivorous that terrified all surrounding habitat creatures. The appearance was similar to a stretched lizard moving on powerful hind limbs and almost 2-metre long tail. The forelimbs were two times shorter than hind limbs, however, unusually long for that period, and ended up in claws

A wide skull with powerful jaws embedded a dense sharp teeth fence. Strong covering plates for head and back provided enough protection from the attackers. Postosuchus feed included herbivorous dinosaurs like Placerias. It scanned the surroundings spotting a prey remotely than ambushed and made a fast kill.
