Jurassic Park Tanystropheus (Updated 2014) by Hellraptor Jurassic Park Tanystropheus (Updated 2014) by Hellraptor
Tanystropheus= Long vertebra
Codename: cobra
Diet: Piscivore, carnivore
Lenght: 6m
Height:40-60 cm
Weight:200 kilograms
Middle Triassic, 232 mya
Area: Europe and middle-east.

This is perhaps the oddest reptile bred on Isla Sorna, a slender fisheater who lives near rivers, swamps and the sea. They are not very aggressive but one vet got his hand badly injured when a tanystrophes bit him with the needle sharp teeth. They are amphibious and thrives both above and under water, much like a crocodile they move faster in the water but can speed up on short distances on land. The long neck is usefull to catch fish, often seen on rocks near the ocean. Tanystropheus can often be found in same areas as Pteranodons since both animals feed on same prey. They were moved to Nublar aswell but never got a complete enclosure before the incident 1993.

Can be aggressive if angerd or irritated.

First Apperance: Jurassic Park toyline series 2 (1994)

Thanks :) But tanystropheus was not a dinosaurs, it was a semi-aquatic reptile that was not related to dinosaurs at all.
