Public to get first look at world's oldest crocodile fossil

Queensland, Australia: What is said to be the world's oldest known crocodile fossil will be revealed to the public today in the area where it was discovered 10 years ago.

Isisfordia Duncani, thought to be 95 to 98 million years old, made headlines around the world when it was revealed last month because crocodiles were previously thought to have originated in North America or Europe.

It will be housed in a $1.5 million outer Barcoo interpretation centre in western Queensland being opened today.
