Today Scientific Reports and many other mass media have published the article of Albert G. Sellés (Catalan Institute of Paleontology), investigation leader of “A small Cretaceous crocodyliform in a dinosaur nesting ground and the origin of sebecids” (Scientific Reports volume 10, Article number: 15293 (2020) ).

The article describes the new species  Ogresuchus furatus (in english “the ogre-crocodile that went stolen”) and it points it out as the oldest sebecid fossil discovered until today: it dates back from 75,1 million years ago, while the oldest fossil which was known was 10 million years ealier. Due to this, the history of this family has to be revised.
