A Plesiosaur is a relatively large, long-necked aquatic reptile. There are two distinct forms of the creature, the Plesiosaur and the Pliosaur.[2]

Anatomy Edit

The Plesiosaur is a aquatic reptile that tends to have a long neck that extends about 8-46 feet long. There are two forms of a Plesiosaur. The Plesiosaur and the Pliosaur. A Plesiosaur, as said before, have longer necks that extend to catch its prey. A Pliosaur have a large head and strong jaws and sharp teeth that will crush any ship.[2]

Plesiosaurs have a broad flat body and a short tail. Their limbs, four long flippers, are powered by strong muscles attached to wide bony plates formed by the shoulder girdle and the pelvis. The flippers makes a strong, flying movement through the water. Plesiosaurs typically grows to be about 3.5 metres in length (11.48 feet), 1 meter in height (3.28 feet) and with a weight of 449.96 kilo (992 pounds). Their top speed underwater is 16.5 kilometres per hour (10.25 miles per hour.) While a Plesiosaur may not seem very intimidating based on their size, they are still giant compared to humans.

Habitat Edit

Plesiosaurs tend to live in open areas in the sea, swelling underwater. In the time that Prill battled Fothcrah, it might have been because she was coming up for air. They eat just about any sea animal out there.[2]

Trivia Edit

They became especially common during the Jurassic Period, thriving until their disappearance due to the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event at the end of the Cretaceous Period, about 66 million years ago. They had a worldwide oceanic distribution. (read more on Wikipeda)
