sorry for not being very active lately:/
So as the title says. What is your favorite rauisuchiade?
ypu may not know what this is.
well it is a ancient branch of archosaurs living in the Triassic period.
my favorite is faslosachus.why?
It is a 30 to 36 foot long 3 to 5 ton land croc withvt.rex jaws
so whats your favorit?
after looking through them Postosuchus, and Sourosuchus are my choices.

If there is one thing we can agree on it is that faslosuchus is awesome.
it is indeed awesome, but 3-5 tons is too much.
Snivley and Henderson(2004) gave a weight estimate of ~590kg for a 6.5 meter saurosuchus.
now, isometric scaling based on the upper length estimates yield ~1800kg [a range of 1,100kg-2,500kg] in other words, 1-2 tons.
very big animal, just not that big.
I've never had a favorite rauisuchid, but off the top of my head i'd have to say teratosaurus.
Nature doesn't deceive us; it is we who deceive ourselves.
fasolasuchas is my favorite as well
Nice choices, Postosuchus for me.
TYRANT KING - This is a very fun question you have asked! Hmm...I would have to say that my favorite member of the rauisuchians is the Arizonasaurus Babbitti! It is an extremely interesting animal - something like a dimetrodon mixed with a Saurosuchus Galilei! Thank you so much for presenting this insteresting topic! :)
Postosuchus and Saurosuchus are tied for #1.
