Thalassomedon. Model of a Thalassomedon, a type of long-necked Plesiosaur. Plesiosaurs were marine reptiles from the Mesozoic era (between 225 and 65 million years ago). Many had short tails and long necks, and large paddle-like limbs. Their small heads and sharp teeth were probably useful for snapping up the fish which are thought to have formed their diet.
