Photo: 5 "Oddball" Crocs Discovered, Including Dinosaur-Eater



BoarCroc (pictured in an artist's illustration) was a 20-foot-long (6.1-meter-long) "saber-toothed cat in armor" that ate dinosaurs for dinner.

The creature is among five ancient crocodile cousins discovered beneath the windswept dunes of the Sahara, archaeologists said in November 2009.
