phylum Chordata Rutiodon ("Wrinkle tooth") lived during the Late Triassic period, and was about 10 to 25 feet (3 to 8 meters) in length. Rutiodon is known from the eastern United States (North Carolina, New York, New Jersey). Like other phytosaurs, Rutiodon strongly resembled a crocodile, but its nostrils were positioned far back on the head, close to the eyes, instead of at the tip of the snout.
