Was there ever a species of vegetarian crocodile?

    Oddly enough yes. The Simoschus Clarki (Latin for Clark’s pug-nose crock) is a now extinct species of crocodile that lived in the early Cretaceous period. Archeologist’s uncovered a single skull from the species in 2001. Because the teeth of the skull were of an odd shape (like cloves or maple leaves) and because of its short snout (almost pig-like), biologists concluded that the animal would have been unable to tear flesh and would have therefore likely been an herbivore.
