Sea dinosaurs - Plesiosaurus!

Plesiosaurus is actualy not a see dinosaur! Plesiosaurus is a huge sea reptile!

Pleisosaurus was a large aquatic reptile that lived in the Early Jurassic Period, between 185 and 175 million years ago. Its name is derived from the Greek words "plesios" meaning "closer to" and "saurus" meaning "lizard", chosen by scientists to signify that its outward appearance had been more lizard-like than fish-like as compared with Ichtiosaurus which was discovered at more or less same time.

Plesiosaurus is known by its nearly complete skeletons discovered in England. Although there are a number of modern day myths surrounding this order of creature, such as the myth of the Loch Ness Monster, it is known to be extinct.
Plesiosaurus is distinguishable by its small head, long and slender neck, broad turtle-like body, short tail, and two pairs of large elongated paddles. It was approx. 3.5 m long and weighed between 90 and 45o kg.

Plesiosaurus fed on fish, squid, mollusks, and other smaller aquatic animals. Its fossils have been found in Europe, Asia, North America and Australia.Pleisosaurus was a large aquatic reptile that lived in the Early Jurassic Period, between 185 and 175 million years ago.
