Did crocodiles share a common ancestor with birds?
Asked in Dolphins and Porpoises
That crocodiles share a common ancestor with bird dolphins and dog support your answer?
Crocodiles and birds share a common ancestor. This can be seen by comparing the internal anatomy of the two. Dogs and Dolphins also have a common ancestor. Their skeletons again are both distinctly mammillian. The ancestor of dogs and dolphins and the ancestor of birds and crocodiles will again share a common ancestor, but you will need to go much further back. I am not sure of the timescales but we are talking tens to hundreds of million years.

Asked in Turtles and Tortoises
Why is the dna of crocodiles is more similar to birds dna as compared to dna of turtles?
Simply put, birds are evolved from small dinosars, and dinosaurs belong to the same group that crocodiles belong to, archosauria, while turtles belong to the group sauropsida, because, while they appear to be more similar to crocodiles than birds, the evolutionary common ancestor they share is far more ancient, unlike that of crocodiles and dinosaurs. That's evolution for you.
