Notosuchia is a group of mostly terrestrial crocodyliforms. The presence of a prominent crest overhanging the acetabulum, slender straight-shafted long bones with muscular insertions close to the joints, and a stable knee joint, suggests that they had an erect posture. This stance has been proposed to be linked to endothermy because it is present in mammals and birds, and it contributes to the efficiency of their respiratory systems. However, a bone paleohistological study unexpectedly suggested...
