(meaning "near lizard") had flippers and they were marine
reptiles from the Mesozoic Era- they were not dinosaurs. Plesiosaurs are

with very strong jaws and short necks.
were large, marine reptiles from the Mesozoic Era that ranged in size from
8-46 feet long. They had four flippers, sharp teeth in strong jaws, and
short, pointed tails.
Plesiosaurs lived in the open oceans and breathed air. Some Plesiosaurs have been found with small stones in their stomachs; these may have been used to help grind up their food, or as ballast, to help them dive. They probably laid eggs in beach sand (like modern-day sea turtles).
