93 million-year-old crocodile fossil discovered with baby dinosaur in its stomach

Gondwana Research's report says the huge crocodile could have grown to about 2.5m and may have died in a flood. The fossil is thought to be around 35 per cent preserved, with a "near-complete skull" and scary teeth still there for us to see.
