The holotype fossil of Barinasuchus arveloi, found in the El Socó creek, a remarkable paleontological finding of the Los Llanos region of Venezuela.
Barinasuchus arveloi was the largest terrestrial predator known to have lived during the so-called Age of Mammals.
Hypothetical reconstruction of Barinasuchus based on more complete relatives along the preserved skulls. Measurements of Barinasuchus taken from Molnar RE, de Vasconcellos FM (2016). Height of human depicted is 175 cm.
As the largest terrestrial predator of its time, the Barinasuchus probably ate pretty much any animal that crossed its path.
