Facts[edit | edit source]
Like other related prestosuchids, Prestosuchus had a deep skull and serrated teeth. Prestosuchus lived during the Late Triassic in what is now Brazil. It reached lengths of nearly 5 meters. While it resembled a dinosaur in having a large body and upright posture, it was actually a rauisuchian archosaur more closely related to modern crocodilians.
