Thoracosaurus is an extinct genus of gavialoid crocodilian which existed during the late Cretaceous and early Paleocene. It contains the species Thoracosaurus neocesariensis in North America and Thoracosaurus macrorhynchus in Europe. A number of species have been referred to this genus, but most are dubious. Thoracosaurus scanicus was a fairly large gavialoid, with a length of more than 4.4 meters (14.4 feet) and a 55 cm skull.
