Amphibian lovers, set your TiVos. National Geographic is set to unveil a new group of “oddball” crocs at 9pm, Saturday November 21st in “When Crocs Ate Dinosaurs.”
“There’s an entire croc world brewing in Africa that we really had only an inkling about before,” Paul Sereno, a paleontologist at the University of Chicago, told National Geographic News. “We knew about SuperCroc, the titan of all crocs, but we didn’t have quite an idea of what existed in the shadows,” he said. According to the report, now they have found three new species nicknamed PancakeCroc, BoarCroc and RatCroc and new skeletons of DuckCroc and DogCroc. “We have crocs here that ate plants and galloped and ate dinosaurs and were flat as a board,” Sereno told National Geographic News.
