Sebecus_icaeorhinus_Marcus_Burkhardt

Sebecus icaeorhinus was a crocodile that was about 2-3 metres long and lived in the Eocene in South America. It has several similarities with dinosaurs, so separate teeth were interpreted as teeth of theropods and a survival of dinosaurs in South America to the Tertiary was supposed until they were definitely collated.
