Dakosaurus Andiniensis was a prehistoric relative of marine crocodiles found in Patagonian, Argentina. It would have been 4 meters (13 feet) long from nose to tail and was characterized by it's carnivorous-dinosaur-like head and a distinctive rudder-like tail. Prompted by the creature's large jaws and sharp, conical teeth, the beast was nicknamed Godzilla by it's discoverer Zulma Gasparini and her team.
