    Actually a lot of triassic Archosaurs like almost all Ornithosuchidae (the most familiar would be their namesake Ornithosuchus) had the ability to walk on two legs (mostly doing so when they needed to move fast). But as far as I know none of them were as big as a Kroxigor (Ornithosuchus was formerly estimated to have been around 4 metres long but today his length is estimated around 2 metres).

    I think I'd rather see this as an alternate take on Cold Ones in lieu of an alternate take on Kroxigor.

    I guess that's because in the end this kind of biped posture is just something entirely different from human biped posture. Those animals just don't look human even if they're walking on two legs because it's achieved in an entirely different way. And a Kroxigor has clearly a human posture. There should have been primate-like crocodiles to evolve into something like that. And sadly (or maybe gladly?) there never were such.

    Off topic: Is this grammatically correct? I think it is the subjunctive, but I'm not quite sure.
