Long-necked hunter of the inland seas
I am an elasmosaur, a type of plesiosaur with an extremely long, slender neck. Some elasmosaurs had more than 70 vertebrae in their necks, more than any other type of animal, but I had limited neck flexibility. I am known from a single skull and a small number of associated neck vertebrae. This skull is crushed but complete, with the lower jaw still in place. Teeth marks on the skull are thought to be evidence of an attack by a large predator, possibly a Kronosaurus.
My skeleton was found at Maxwelton, western-central Queensland. Part of my skeleton—a piece of my skull—was found by Mr Noonan, while another part of my skeleton—the tip of my snout and the vertebrae—was found by Queensland palaeontologists Ralph Molnar, Tony Thulborn and Mary Wade. It was only later that it was realised these specimens were from the same animal. My fossils have only been found in Queensland.
