- n. Plural form of shartegosuchid.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
The closest relatives of Fruitachampsa - called shartegosuchids - have been found in the Mesozoic sediments of Mongolia, China, and Siberia.
How shartegosuchids relate to other crocs, however, is difficult to discern.
Especially perplexing are those flat-topped teeth which Fruitachampsa shares with other shartegosuchids - what kind of food could such a tooth be suited to?
