Apex Predator of the Permian era

Here's my portrait of a carnivorous animal that 'ruled' the flooded swamps and the overgrown watercourses of the Permian era many millions of years before the great Dinosaurs evolved! Prionosuchus ( whose Greek scientific name,roughly translated,comes across as 'prototype of the crocodile' ) was a gigantic ( possibly attaining an adult length of over 15 feet! ) salamander-like Amphibian with shark-like teeth and gills that preyed upon fish and smaller amphibians in the great land masses ( that eventually became present day North America) 235 to 245 million years ago. We'll never know exactly what a living specimen might have looked like but I've been experimenting with color in my 'prehistoric portraits' lately so I added some fancifully colorful details to my drawing of this specimen.
