Plesiosaurus was a genus of marine sauropterygian reptiles that lived during the Jurassic Period. The type species of this genus is Plesiosaurus dolichodeirus. Skeletons are found in Europe.

Pleisiosaurus is distinguished by its small head, short snout, long and slender neck, broad turtle-like body, a short tail, and two pairs of large, elongated paddles. Plesiosaurus fed on belemnites, fish, and other prey.

Some traces of skin discovered suggest that it was smooth, not scaly.

Plesiosaurus in the storyboard for Jurassic World

The Plesiosaur Pond was an attraction originally meant to appear in Jurassic World but was cut from the final film. It was to be a large pool like the Jurassic World Lagoon inhabitated by Plesiosaurus and several unidentified species of ichthyosaurs. Visitors to Jurassic World would be able to visit the attraction by boarding a submarine attached to a monorail.[2]
