A Review of the Deinosuchus Crocodile Model

Deinosuchus (Carnegie Collectibles – Safari Ltd) by Everything Dinosaur

After team members at Everything Dinosaur produced a short video review of the Kaprosuchus prehistoric crocodile model, we were asked to create a video of the Deinosuchus replica.  Both these models are made by Safari Ltd, one is a terrestrial crocodile whereas, the other, Deinosuchus, was adapted to a life in water.

Deinosuchus was a water-borne ambush predator, a formidable creature that lived in the Late Cretaceous of the southern United States.  This is an excellent replica, the Carnegie Collectibles Deinosuchus crocodile model.

In this short (five minutes) review we discuss the Deinosuchus model, comment on the fossil material associated with this prehistoric crocodile and provide a little more information as to how Deinosuchus may have lived and hunted.  We enjoyed making this video using the Carnegie Deinosuchus.

    Indeed apart from the skull of Deinosuchus I do not think anything has been discovered of this extraordinary animal.

  2. The fossil material ascribed to Deinosuchus is very fragmentary, but teeth, dermal armour, fragments of jawbone and other fossils relating to Late Cretaceous Crocodylomorphs have all been assigned to Deinosuchus. The skull material (cranial material) is the most important in terms of understanding size and morphology. There have even been coprolites found believed to have been produced by Deinosuchids and these have given an insight into this animal’s potential diet – search for “Deinosuchus” in the Everything Dinosaur blog and you should find articles on this subject.
