Saltoposuchus was between about 3 feet (1 meter) and 5 feet (1.5 meters) long. It had long hind limbs, and shorter arms, and probably was a fast bipedal (two-legged) runner, although it almost certainly could walk on quadrupedal (four-legged) fashion as well.
In some books, Saltoposchus is described as being an early dinosaur, or as being either the direct ancestor of, or closely related to the ancestor of, the dinosaurs. Today however, most scientists do not believe that Saltoposuchus was a dinosaur or dinosaur ancestor.
Saltoposuchus was a crodile-like reptile that lived about 220 million years ago
