Most of the osteoderms are wider than longer, with a round lateral portion that does not articulate to any flank osteoderm. View all coordinates using: Therefore the long and stout limb bones, overhanging crest of the illium and the light weighted armor, also allowed to B. From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository. Original skeleton salgzdoensis a Baurusuchus salgadoensisa prehistoric reptile from the Cretaceous of Brazil, extinct about 90, years ago.

Retrieved from ” https: Login to view email address. It was a terrestrial predator and scavenger, about 3. This page was last edited on 2 Aprilat Baurusuchus is an extinct genus of baurusuchid mesoeucrocodylian from the Late Cretaceous of Salgadownsis. The timestamp is only as salgadoenssi as the clock in the camera, and it may be completely wrong.

The only morphological difference appears at the caudalmost portion of the tail, where the osteoderms are craniocaudally elongated. The proximal end possess a mesial projection that articulates itself to the illium, similar to those of Protosuchia and thecodont archosaurs as the Rauisuchia. The fourth trochanter is pronouced and posteriorlly oriented. Such a strategy would have made it less water-bound than most salgsdoensis crocodiles, allowing it to live in more continental climate.

Advanced Notosuchia Notosuchidae Notosuchus. Retrieved salgavoensis ” https: Both of this supports the terrestrial hypothesis. Seven diagnostic features for the group were described which include the moderate size and the broad frontals. The strongly bent pterygoids suggest a powerful bite and that Baurusuchus could close its jaw very quickly. The paper does not support its affiliation to Baurusuchus and views it as a close relative of Aplestosuchus. These anatomical data may indicate how the Baurusuchidae had a wide distribution in Gondwanaland as they were able to move across large distances.

In other projects Wikimedia Commons. This page was baurusychus edited on 2 Aprilat The close articulation of the dorsal vertebrae may indicate a less flexible dorsal spine, ideal to limb-driven methods of locomotion.

You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or baurusucyus use.

Other versions of this document in Nature Precedings None. The following other wikis use this file: The high salgwdoensis expanded neural spines of the posterior dorsal and sacral vertebrae are associated to muscle attachment from the osteoderms and the pelvic musculature, all used in the limb-driven locomotion.

Alberto Barbosa de Carvalho, Brazilian paleontologist.

Baurusuchys postcranial skeleton of B. The anterior caudal vertebrae are robust as the sacral ones but their neural spines are more stout, anteriorlly expanded and higher. This file contains additional information such as Exif metadata which may have been added by the digital camera, scanner, or software program used to create or digitize it. The dorsal vertebrae are close articulated with short and craniocaudally expanded neural spines, specially the posterior ones.

If the file has been modified from its original state, some details such as the timestamp may not fully reflect those of the original file. The medial portion has little variation along the scutes rows and may bear medial lamellar dorsoventral structures of articulation to the adjacent bony plate.

Permission Reusing this file. The paper referred only Stratiotosuchus maxhechti and Baurusuchus to the subfamily, making Stratiotosuchus Baurusuchus’ closest relative so far. The anterior articular facet is discreet and the osteoderms are not as imbricated as occur in other crocodyliforms and even may not be imbricated at all.

The occurrence of very complete skeletons in correlated stratigraphic levels supports this. The imbrication of dorsal armor assists the limb-driven locomotion of many crocodyliform by reducing the flexibility of the dorsal spine during the high-walk erect stance. The timestamp is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, and it may be completely wrong.

The sacral vertebrae are robust and have the lateral processes highly fused to the ilium. The illium of B. The femur is long when compared to extant crocodilians, showing a straight aspect in lateral view and a slight sigmoid aspect in frontal view.
