This was a small rhynchosaur (diapsid reptiles related to the archosaurs), and being 2 feet long one of the smallest known of its group. Footprints believed to belong to Rhynchosaurus- suitably named Rhynchosauroides -have been found in the Alps. It had a semi-erect posture like a crocodile and its hind feet appear to have been adapted for scratching and digging. It had two large teeth at the front of its head, and its skull structure suggests that it had a good sense of smell, but poor hearing.
Imagine a large, reptilian naked mole rat.
