❃ Plesiosaurs were anomalous creatures––much like every single creature that lived during the age of the dinosaurs. Plesiosaurs resembled a combination between crocodiles (like the Mosasaurus), dolphins, and giraffe necks. They belonged to the sea, but based on how they looked, land was also a welcome place for them.
❃ Though Plesiosaurs manuevered through the waters, a program revealed that their big hind flippers contributed absolutely nothing to how they move underwater. The Plesiosaur flapped their front flippers and “flew” like today’s penguins.
❃ Plesiosaurs are humungous beasts––one that instills fear into their fellow marine creatures. They are reported to have grown 15 feet long (4.5 meters) and had a broad, flat body with a long neck and short tail. Wait, is this the Loch Ness Monster?
