A 150-million-year-old fossilised skeleton discovered in Chile in 2014 belongs to the ancestor of the modern crocodile. The species has been named 'Burkesuchus mallingrandensis'. About 200 million years ago, crocodiles were smaller and did not live in water and the fossils will help understand how these reptiles went from being terrestrial to aquatic, a researcher said.
