Kaprosuchus is an extinct genus of mahajangasuchid crocodyliform. It is known from a single nearly complete skull collected from the Upper Cretaceous Echkar Formation of Niger. The name means “boar crocodile” from the Greek kapros (“boar”) and souchos (“crocodile”) in reference to its unusually large caniniform teeth which resemble those of a boar. It has been nicknamed “BoarCroc” by Paul Sereno and Hans Larsson, who first described the genus in a monograph published in ZooKeys in 2009 along with other Saharan crocodyliformes such as Anatosuchus and Laganosuchus. The type species is K. saharicus.Kaprosuchus is estimated to have been around 6 metres (20 feet) in length
