    If that’s a gharial, maybe the reason for the long face is that they’re almost extinct?

    I am amazed at how often the same basic shape has evolved among the archosaurs. From pterosaurs to crocodylians to some of the ichthyosaurs.

    It’s a gharial, Ichthy. But the linked article points out some good news for them.

    If you had paused for a moment, you would have realised that Ichthyic is already quite informed. I like the pic that you pointed to, though.
