Utah’s Petrified Forest paleontologists teamed up with the Natural History Museum of Utah, University of Southern California, and Canyonlands National Park and found a rare Permian-aged skeleton in late October, possibly a new species.
Findings by Romanian palaeontologist Matyas Vremir suggest that crocodiles and birds may have shared nests roughly 68 million years ago.
The crocodiles are believed to have been in the Abanda caves for around 3,000 years, where the lack of light in the caves is believed to have caused depigmentation on their skin along with urea in bat droppings.
