Borealosuchus wilsoni belongs to an extinct genus of crocodilians that lived in North America from the Late Cretaceous to the Eocene. It is characterized by a skull that is wide at the back and narrow at the front. Based on its skull shape and robust teeth it is presumed to have had a mixed diet (not limited to fish only).
Based on other full skeletons of this species which have been found: the full size of the skull would have been about 28 inches long and 14 inches wide. The full length of the crocodile would have been between 12 and 15 feet long.
