This impresive and relatively complete crocodile skull belongs to Euthecodon brumpti, a large slender snouted fish eating crocodile. It was one of the most common crocodiles in the Turkna Basin however it is now extinct. A particularly large specimen of this crocodile found at Lothagam on the west side of Lake Turkana dated to some 4 million years, was estimated to have been almost 10 meters in length. It looks similar however it is not related to the modern day gharial crocodiles. 

It has distinctive sharp and slender teeth with a rounded and enlarged nostrum.
