“Another creature from the ancient oceans. This time, a Plesiosaurus. It has a flat body, an elongated tail, and four powerful flippers that help it glide through the water. Like modern-day sea mammals, it has to come up for air. It basically spends its time surfing and eating – which is, heh, not a bad way to live.
“ – Owen Grady
Plesiosaurus was an extinct genus of marine sauropterygian reptiles that lived during the Jurassic Period. The type species of this genus is Plesiosaurus dolichodeirus. Skeletons are found in Europe.
Pleisiosaurus is distinguished by its small head, short snout, long and slender neck, broad turtle-like body, a short tail with a fluke at the end, and two pairs of large, elongated paddles. Plesiosaurus fed on belemnites, fish, and other prey.
Some traces of skin impressions discovered suggest that it had smooth skin, rather than scaly skin.
