Several differnet species of Quinkana are known. The earliest species grew to about 6½ feet (2 meters) in length, but some later species were as much as 16 feet (5 meters) long - as big, perhaps even bigger than, Varanus Priscus (commonly known as "Megalania").
Quinkana is named after the Quinkans, which are spirits described in Australian Aboriginal legends, and depicted in many Aboriginal rock-paintings, especially in Queensland.
Quinkana were terrestrial crocodiles that lived between 24 million and 40,000 years ago
