Plesiosaurus (Greek: (plesios), near to + (sauros), lizard) is a genus of extinct, large marine sauropterygian reptile that lived during the early part of the Jurassic Period, & is known by nearly complete skeletons from the Lias of England. It is distinguishable by its small head, long & slender neck, broad turtle-like body, a short tail, & two pairs of large, elongated paddles. It lends its name to the order Plesiosauria, of which it is an early, but fairly typical member. It contains only one species, the type, Plesiosaurus dolichodeirus. Other species once assigned to this genus, including P. brachypterygius, P. guilielmiiperatoris, & P. tournemirensis have been reassigned to new genera, such as Hydrorion, Seeleyosaurus & Occitanosaurus. This fridge magnet is made from resin & measures 5cm high by 6.5cm wide. Plesiosaur Fossil Prehistoric Fridge Magnet
