Museum Makers Choice – The Plesiosaur

During the Jurassic a shallow sea full of marine life covered the area that is now North Lincolnshire. Marine reptiles were the predators at the top of the food chain in the Jurassic Sea. One of the most fearsome marine reptiles was the Plesiosaur. A Plesiosaur had a small head, long slender neck, a big body, short tail and two pairs of large flippers. They ate lots of the other creatures in the Jurassic Sea, including fish and ammonites.

In this film Museum Maker, Nathan Kynman, takes a closer look at one of the Museum’s Plesiosaur fossils from Crosby Warren Mine. The Plesiosaur is on display in Jurassic Sea.
