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)

Did you know that Tanystropheus almost defied physics? It now has the longest neck the laws of physics can allow.

With a lot of these dinosaurs it leaves you to wonder what can set them off. But this would be what I want in a documentary. I love the Mosasaur, but this creature seems to be very curious.

Do you think these creatures could eat food on land? In my old dinosaur book there was one mention that was said to be eating scraps thrown up by a storm (it sounds like such an easy solution), but this had to be a big lizard which means...it probably wasn't on land too often.

No, this is not the ancestor of snakes. Tanystropheus refers to protorosaurs.

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

So this now understands. In the story one of them was catching fish, Nothosaurus was in it too. Maybe they're cousins (since in the both book are greenish color). The Triassic seems to be more about seem like it seems.

Will you bring back your sea mamels? I loved the crocodiles you made and those whales, those were the best I seen and I hope you bring them back since it was fun to learn about them

Well, this reptile may not be as extinct as we ought to believe. This reptile is supposed to live in Lake Champlain, and the inhabitants there call it "Champ". I saw some documentaries, and one said that this reptile was the Champ creature. Of course, Jurassic Park would have a very difficult time getting Champ to the islands because there are actual laws that protect
Champ in case it does exist.

Ingen: What do you mean that the Tanystropheus has to stay at Lake Champlain?

It would be cool if this creature was really found living there...

i aggre with you, so this animal could actuallt be a cryptid.
Reply
:iconslipknotghidorah:
SlipknotGhidorah Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2009
Yeah, he could be. Lets take a look at the giant squid. He used to be a cryptid, but he is a known species because of the bodies washed on the shore. The celocanth was also believed to be extinct for over 65 million years, until the 1930's when the fisherman caught one. On top of that, the Ivory Billed Woodpecker, the Mokle-membe (the sauropod that lives in Africa), the Loch Ness Monster, and countless other cryptids might exist out there, but we haven't found them yet. Who knows, possibly in the future, we may find some of them and catalogue them into the Animal Kingdom as existing species. It just takes time to find them.

SlipknotGhidorah Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2009
Yes. Lets take a look at Loch Ness. That's a very deep and cold lake. Bigfoot lives in the wilderness (mostly unexplored), and the Mokle-membe lives in Africa, which is a very dangerous and wild country. With habitats like this, it's very easy to understand that these creatures haven't been discovered yet.

Why thank you. Speaking of cryptids, I wonder about the "Bloop" monster. I know it's supposed to be larger than a blue whale, but... if a body was ever found of this creature, pehaps some light would be shed on the origins of Leviathan and kaiju... of course, only about 1% of the entire ocean was explored, so that thing could be anywhere.
