That's a frickin' Hippopotamus gorgops in its jaws by the way. At 27ft long, it was the biggest true crocodile ever known (creatures such as Sarcosuchus or Purrussaurus were bigger, but not true crocodiles) and it might have preyed on early hominins. Yeah, trying being neighbors with a crocodile big enough to star in Lake Placid
