Crocodylomorpha is a group of archosaurs that includes the crocodilians and their extinct relatives.  During Mesozoic and early Cenozoic times, crocodylomorphs were far more diverse than they are now. Triassic forms were small, lightly built, active terrestrial animals. These were supplanted during the early Jurassic by various aquatic and marine forms.
