"Crocodilians are some of the most common and important members of the Hell Creek ecosystem and Borealosuchus (Northern Crocodile) is the most abundant of them all. This animal lives much like the crocodiles of today, lurking below the surface of swamps and rivers, waiting to ambush prey that venture too close to the water's edge. This ancient species is close to the ancestor of all modern crocodilians, and its genus survived on long after the extinction that ended the age of dinosaurs."
― Saurian encyclopedia
Borealosuchus is an extinct genus of crocodylomorph that lived in the late Cretaceous and Early Paleogene periods that appears in Saurian. It was a mid-sized creature with a length of about 9.2 feet (2.8 meters). Six species of Borealosuchus are currently recognized. In order of their naming, they are B. sternbergii, B. acutidentatus, B. wilsoni, B. formidabilis, B. griffithi, and B. threeensis. Four of these species (B. sternbergi, B. acutidentatus, B. wilsoni, and B. formidabilis) were originally named as species of Leidyosuchus. It could hunt small dinosaurs but would have to be constantly on guard due to predators that easily could injure if not kill it. Borealosuchus also would probably have more primitive crocodilian features and less advanced ones, which lead some to consider it as a basal crocodilian, however recent studies seem to suggest that Borealosuchus was a stem-crocodilian instead.
In Saurian Edit
Borealosuchus is currently present in Saurian. Its' colors are dark gray for most of the body, black stripes, and a white underbelly to match with its' habitat. It is currently one of the main freshwater predators in the game and it is capable of killing the player with few biting.
