Fossil Devil - Part Two by Qilong Fossil Devil - Part Two by Qilong
This is part two of a piece. Part one is here: [link] .

Perhaps one of the most peculiar animals in the question of the study of the origin of pterosaurs, Scleromochlus has been considered a sort of "grandfather" to both pterosaurs and dinosaurs, and as an apparent non-dinosaur archosaur, but also not a crocodylian, it has been notable for framing the debate on exactly what kind of animal it was that pterosaurs could have evolved from.

Huh? Not to shabby for a Croc; it's brain case looks pretty well sized for it to be smart. You know I read in a dinosaur book that Crocodylians are in moderate league of smart archosaurs, the only contenders that beat it are Allosaurids like Allosaurus and the Maniraptorians like Troodon.
