Plesiosaurus had live young and swam with their children in groups
Plesiosaurus was a little less than five meters long, from head to tail.
Plesiosaurus was 15 feet long and had a long neck, small head and a big body.
For most of her life, she explored the world. She was about 15 feet long and had a long neck, large body, and small head. Though she could not walk on land due to her inflexible neck and stiff flippers that could not support her body weight, she was able to contribute to the Prehistoric Mapping Foundation by exploring most of the world’s oceans. Her kind lived all over the world's oceans in their time. She was the PMF’s best ocean explorer and will be missed.
Later in her life, she worked at the Prehistoric North Atlantic Marine Hospital delivering babies. Even though she was a reptile, she had much experience with this, since she had her own live young. She also focused on one child at a time, like dolphins and other mammals do.
