Maybe Sarcosuchus.

I'm gonna say Deinosuchus because it was a little bigger, had broader jaws, and a slightly stronger bite force. But honestly, this fight could probably go either way.

Deinosuchus, but just by a bit. Here, it really does come down to jaws, and a salt water croc has better ones than a gahrial.

Maybe not Sarcosuchus. Because some books say Sarcosuchus was the biggest Crocodile, but a Prehistoric Park episode said: Deinosuchus was the Biggest Crocodile. So Maybe Deinosuchus.

Well, the weight estimates are really vague. Firstly, only deinosuchus's skull has been found, so there's not much to study. The books can't really say much else, seeing as sarcosuchus has considerably more fossil evidence to show its length. We are only basing our estimates of deinosuchus's size on its skull by comparing it to modern crocs, which they weren't even as closely related to as we previously thought.

sorry, I was looking at a thread from WAY back, on the third page or something. You have a point though.

I think Deinosuchus would win, due to the fact that it was bigger.

deinosuchus would win. sarcho is like a gavial, made to eat fish or small animals. deino's were made for gnawing and chomping. deino would have been injured

Actually, the enormity of the gharial's jaws were enough to suggest killing ouranosaurus.

Actually, deinosuchus's jaws would have been a much more effective weapon than sarcosuchus's gharial-like jaws.

The Deinosuchus... Because Sarcosuchus was a cousn for gharil and Deino was a cousin of nile crocodile. The Nile had a better biting force and much bigger that i culd say that deino wins

Deinosuchus would win, I know that because Deinosuchus had larger, more powerful jaws, PLUS a more heavily built body. Deinosuchus would represent the saltwater crocodile, and the saltwater crocodile is bigger and has bigger jaws than the gharial.

Deinosuchus was more of a relative to the alligator than crocodile.

Deinosuchus wins; its jaws were robust like a crocodile, and Sarcho had jaws like a gharial. It is believed that Sarchosuchus mainly fed on fish and occasionally fed on dinos, and Deinosuchus mainly fed on dinos and occasionally fed on fish.
