Rauisuchus is a genus of extinct basal archosaur which lived in what is now the Geopark of Paleorrota, Brazil, during the middle Triassic period (240-230 million years ago). It contains one species, R. tiradentes. Named after fossil collector Dr. Wilhelm Rau, Rauisuchus belonged to a group of land-dwelling relatives to crocodiles. These reptiles were among the top predators of their day, eating other reptiles for food and maybe hunting early dinosaurs.
