Koolasuchus was a large temnospondyl about the size of a modern day crocodile. Since crocodiles weren't able to live in Antarctica (even without the ice caps), giant amphibians remained. They preyed upon small dinosaurs, such as Leallynasaura. They also lived in Australia 137 to 105 MYA. It was about 5 metres (15 ft) long and weighed 500 kg.

Popular cultureEdit

Koolasuchus was seen in Walking with Dinosaurs. It was first seen grabbing a dead Leaellynasaura. Later it was seen ambling out of its hibernation to go swim in the river. It was later seen trying to catch a juvenile Leaellynasaura, but missed. It was finally seen returning from the river back to its stream to go back into hibernation.

It also appears in Jurassic Park: Builder as a limited edition aquatic creature.

It also appears in Jurassic World: The Game as a rare amphibian.
