I believe it was protein fragments. They somehow used the protein to determine the t. rex in question was a female, by comparing the proteins to that of female chickens. Don't quote me on it, though.

Purussaurus lived in South Amrica,Deinosuchus is in the US,Sarcosuchus is closer in terms of places but it's a Pholidosauridae,Purussaurus is a Caiman and we can clearly see the huge difference in the snout.

i don't think that paleontologists have discovered any new giant crocodilian but i'm sure that there were some crocodilians which were bigger than purussaurus but we haven't found them yet so for now purussaurus is the biggest crocodilian that ever lived
