  • They are members of an extinct group of aquatic reptiles, most of which were very similar in appearance and behavior.
  • Their geographic distribution was very wide and their fossils span almost the entire Mesozoic Era.
  • They, initially thought to belong to the Triassic Period of Asia, were known as long-bodied wavy swimmers, while differing from several characteristics found in later species.
  • This species belongs to a significant transitional period during the Early Cretaceous period when the Earth was coming out of a period of relatively cold, rising sea levels and the supercontinent Pangea (a supercontinent that included almost all of Earth’s landmass) north and south. The land was being divided.
