Indosuchus is referred as "Indian crocodile" in Greek. Indosuchus is a genus of abelisaurid dinosaur group that has been existed in the late Cretaceous period. This Carnivore species comes under the classification of Chordata, Reptila, Dinosauria, Saurischia, Theropoda, Abelisauridae.
It is believed that these species are the inhabitants of current India as some scattered remains were first discovered in south India, in 1933. Three partial skulls were found at Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh. Later with the remains, the creature was reconstructed as a large theropod which proved the species get related to Abelisaurus family, the ferocious hunter of the small- to mid-sized hadrosaurs and titanosaurs of central Asia.
Friedrich von Huene and Charles Alfred Matley were the first to describe the species. They described Indosuchus as a bipedal carnivore of theropods family that has been related with Abelisaurus, that could be probably of six meters (twenty feet) long with a crested skull, a flattened structure on the top.
