A newly named species of fossil crocodile, discovered at the Arlington Archosaur Site (AAS) in 2009, has a home in the Perot Museum’s collections. Deltasuchus motherali, named for original AAS volunteer Austin Motheral who uncovered the fossils as a teen, was a 20-foot crocodile that roamed our region 95-96 million years ago and likely ate everything it could catch, from turtles to dinosaurs. A team of paleontologists and geologists from San Antonio’s Witte Museum, University of Tennessee Knoxville, and University of Wisconsin-Parkside worked with volunteers at the AAS to uncover, prepare, and identify the new species, the findings of which were published this month in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology.
