Suchomimus ("crocodile mimic") is a genus of large spinosaurid with a crocodile-like mouth that lives in both mainland Dinotopia (mostly in the Rainy Basin), Fish Island and the jungles of Outer Island.


Unlike most giant theropods, Suchomimus has a very long, low snout and narrow jaws studded with some 100 teeth, not very sharp and curving slightly backward. The tip of the snout is enlarged and carries a "rosette" of longer teeth. The animal is reminiscent of crocodilians that eat mainly fish, such as the gharial, a type of large crocodile with a very long, slim snout, from the region of India.
