Trematochampsa Fossil CrocodileDescription: This is a fine example of a jaw section from a crocodyliform of the Trematochampsidae, ann enigmatic taxon first described from Niger. Six rooted teeth are present, while three alveoli (sockets) are to be seen holding roots as well. Notice the distinctive tooth shape in this fine specimen, as well as the good preservation of the enamel, making for a wonderful example of this rarely-seen Archosaur. See my other offerings for an example of a jaw of a near hatchling.
