  • ABSTRACT We describe a new crocodile, Crocodylus thorbjarnarsoni, sp. nov., on the basis of skulls and jaws from Pliocene and Pleistocene deposits in the Lake Turkana Basin of Kenya. The new species has a comparatively broad, deep snout and resembles an extinct horned crocodile from the Quaternary of Olduvai Gorge (C. anthropophagus), but the squamosal ‘horns’ are not as well developed. The skull table has a strongly trapezoidal outline different from those of the living Nile crocodile (C… CONTINUE READING
