What were plesiosaurs?

Plesiosaurs are often mistaken for dinosaurs, however these prehistoric creatures are actually part of a separate group known as "marine reptiles." They first evolved in the Triassic (208.5 MYA) and thrived until the massive KT extinction event caused by the Chicxulub asteroid. This took place at the end of the Cretaceous, and was the same extinction event that wiped out the non-avian dinosaurs (66 MYA).

Paleontology is still a relatively new science, but humans have always been unearthing ancient fossils and trying to make sense of the world around us. When humans first found fossilized plesiosaur bones, they didn’t realize they actually went extinct millions of years ago. Instead they assumed plesiosaurs were still alive, which lead to legends of mythical creatures like the Loch Ness monster!
