Press Release 10-134 - Video
Animation of Pakasuchus kapilimai skull and dentition.

Using a medical scanning technology called X-ray computed tomography, the researchers were able to create detailed digital images of the Pakasuchus teeth accurate to 45 micrometers (millionths of a meter). Because the images were digital, they were ideal for animation, enabling the researchers to observe how the teeth fit with one another and estimate how the jaw may have moved.
