Deinosuchus (dein·o·su·chus) is an extinct genus related to the alligator that lived during the late Cretaceous Period, 145 to 66 million years ago. The name translates as “terrible crocodile”. The first fossils were discovered in North Carolina in the 1850s. Although Deinosuchus was far larger than any modern crocodile or alligator, with the largest adults measuring 35 feet its overall appearance was fairly similar to its smaller relatives still living today. The concrete stamping tool has an overall size of 25” x 48” ( 63.5 x 122 cm.) with a medium slate texture.
