River Giant

This is an amphibian with the attitude of a crocodile



The large vertebra spines held strong muscles.  The centrum (backbone part) are strong enough to walk on land but too weak for much traveling.


Pelvic Girdle

The structure is made of two halves of three bones each that become fused as the animal ages.  The vertebra are not well differentiated into sacrum to support the hips.



The bones of the arms and legs are quite solid with strong muscle attachment.  This shows the animal could walk on dry land.
