The postosuchus was an
archosaur and thus a close relative of modern crocodiles. It had
strikingly ossified skin and a long, narrow snout. It usually moved on
four legs. Sometimes it stood on its hind legs so that it could hold
prey with its claws. When the postosuchus from Schleich® Dinosaurs opens
its powerful, movable jaw the sharp, dagger-like teeth become visible.
Fun Facts: The postosuchus was named after the place it was found – the city of Post in the US state of Texas. It lived around the time of the first dinosaurs.
