Plesiosaurs

These were marine reptiles that lived in the seas from Triassic period feeding on fish and molluscs in the sea. They were lung breathers coming out in the shores to breath and rest before returning to the sea to hunt. They used sea pebbles for buoyancyand to break food3. They had a short tail on a broad body and four large flippers for swimming by flipping movements3.
