Abstract

Tikisuchus romeri n.gen. and sp. is a rauisuchid thecodontian from the Late Triassic Tiki Formation of India and is the first rauisuchid material to be recovered from Asia. The rauisuchids were the dominant terrestrial predators during the Triassic and shared similar ecological niches with the emerging theropods. The agility and superior locomotion of theropods may hve contributed to their success and to their eventual replacement of the rauisuchids at the end of the Triassic.-from Authors
