Learn all about what kinds of crocodiles used to call Utah their home!

This Paleo Talk is about crocodiles, alligators, and their neat cousins!

We’ll be showing off our Batrachopus tracks (made by an early crocodile relative called Protosuchus) and highlighting Utah crocodilians and their sneaky imposters, such as the phytosaurs.
