Becky Barnes works as a paleontologist with the North Dakota Geological Survey at the North Dakota Heritage Center.

In this week's Throwback Thursday she shows us the armor that protects crocodiles, and believe it or not -- crocodiles used to live in North Dakota.

Becky tells us more about this swampy reptile and where they find some of their bones in North Dakota.
