Genus: Kaprosuchus …an extinct genus of mahajangasuchid corcodyliform that lived during the Upper Cretaceous period. Kaprosuchus was largely thought to be a terrestrial predator due to the positioning of its orbits, which are positioned dorsally, and its enlarged caniniform teeth are sharp-edged and straight. Kaprosuchus likely was an ambush hunter and hunted like a big cat, using its large tusks to take down relatively large dinosaurs.
Rare Dinosaur Find: Abandoned Nests with Eggshells
Many fossilized dinosaur eggs have been found, at over 200 sites around the world. Very rarely do the eggs have the preserved parts of embryos in them, so it is often difficult to determine the species of the dinosaur. This picture was taken on July 7, 2003 at Port Angeles, Washington.
The giant Upper Carboniferousdragonfly relative, Meganeura monyi, attained a wingspan of about 680 millimetres (27 in). Museum of Toulouse. Meganisoptera is an extinct order of very large to gigantic insects, occasionally called griffinflies. The order was formerly named Protodonata, the "proto-Odonata", for their similar appearance and supposed relation to modern Odonata (damselflies and dragonflies). They range in Palaeozoic (Late Carboniferous to Late Permian) times
