A colossal reptile, which was a crocodile ancestor, having a length of 30-feet, once found its way around the lagoons present in Tataouine area of southern of Tunisia approximately 130 million years back. Discovered on the peripheries of Sahara — in close proximity to an neighborhood that provided as the Tatooine of Star Wars, and was the source of inspiration of its naming — according to fossils Machimosaurus rex happened to be the biggest aquatic crocodile ever discovered and are a symbol of a new genus of teleosaurid — a variety of vanished crocodylomorph, or a set that consists of crocodiles & their antecedents. The month of December of 2014, a worldwide paleontological group was a couple of days off the conclusion of a mission when they were up giants what did look like a mishmash of trodden, cut off bones. Additional excavation unearthed something a great deal greater.
In an interview done via email by Live Science Andrea Cau, a member of the excavation team and a doctoral scholar at the Geological, Biological, & Environmental branch of Alma Mater Studiorum of Bologna academia stated that at a stage when one of the eyes of crocodile was wholly uncovered, they understood the presence of a full, enormous skull just underneath their feet. After some time has passed they were definite that what they were witnessing was a formerly indefinite species.
