Metriorhynchus was a Thalattosuchian, which was a group of extinct primitive sea crocodilians. It lived in the late Jurassic Period

In The Land Before Time

It was seen in the beginning of the first movie, chasing a small amphibian and attempting to eat it, but fails and swims away. The Metriorhynchus resembles more of a fish; in reality thalattosuchians resembled crocodiles but with a fish-like tail and fins. It was the first Belly Dragger, however, it is the only fully aquatic one.
