An absolute breathtaking 4.1-meter-long Jurassic fossil with the highlight of its incredible articulation of bones and scutes, and has many features that rarely found preserved, including tracheal rings, skin impressions and jaws lined with complete rows of original teeth. Steneosaurus closely resembles living crocodilians called gharials, which are native to India. Like the long-snouted gharial, it is thought to have been a fish-eater. Surprisingly, however, this extinct group is not directly related to the modern species.
