Baru darrowi is an extinct species of Australian mekosuchine crocodilian. The largest known species of Baru, B. darrowi grew to at least 4 metres long.
Baru darrowi is also the largest of the four crocodile species found in the Bullock Creek Local Fauna, northwestern Northern Territory. This crocodile was a large-prey specialist, with a particularly large, muscular head and enormous canine-like teeth. It hunted in meandering rivers across northern Australia during the Miocene epoch.
