At up to 8 metres long, Cryptoclidus was a medium-sized southamerican and european plesiosaur. It had a neck that was up to 2 metres long that did not seem to have been very flexible. It probably kept its bulky body away from its small head so as not to alarm potential prey. It had long pointed teeth, ideal for catching fish and squid. It had four broad paddle-shaped limbs, with which it either "flew" through the water in wave-like undulating movements, or swam like a porpoise by moving upwards on two flippers and gliding back down again on the other two.
