SuperCroc is about Sarcosuchus, a giant crocodile that lived 110 million years ago. There is an interactive tour of the skeletal anatomy of Sarcosuchus; different views and information on the skull; reports on the Niger 2000 Expedition that found 50 percent of the croc, and other discovery stories; excavation tips; a section to guess how much a scute weighs; and an image gallery of Sarcosuchus fossils in the field and lab, with images of the construction of a flesh model.
