Brachychampsa is an extinct genus of alligatoroid. Specimens have been found from New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, North and South Dakota, New Jersey, and Saskatchewan. The genus first appeared during the late Campanian stage of the Late Cretaceous (Judithian North American stage) and became extinct during the early Danian stage of the Paleocene (Puercan North American stage), a few million years after the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event. It was 2.5 meters (8.2 feet) to 3 meters (10 feet) long, the same size as an American alligator. Brachychampsa is distinguished by an enlarged fourth maxillary tooth in the upper jaw. The teeth of Brachychampsa are not only conical and robust, but have round pommel-like caps on the tips. These teeth are not for puncturing and holding flesh like the teeth of other crocodilians, but for breaking up the hard shells of invertebrates like crustaceans.
In Saurian Edit
Brachychampsa is currently present in Saurian. Its' color is a mostly grey body with a cream underbelly to match its' habitat. It serves as the secondary apex predator of the freshwater environments of the game, being just smaller and less frequent than Borealosuchus. It is a threat for players who are still in early growth stage.
