DescriptionTanystropheus was areptile that dated from the Middle Triassic period. The main feature that stands out about this animal is its extremely elongated neck, which measured 3 meters (10 ft) long, longer than its body and tail combined. Tanystropheus has been often proposed and reconstructed as an aquatic or semi-aquatic reptile, which might have lived near the shore and eaten fish or shellfish. However Tanystropheus lacked any obvious water adaptations.
