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.
