In addition, from the scan, the researchers finally revealed that this mysterious creature, named Tanystropheus hydroides, was classified as a reptile that lived in the sea.

“The neck of T. hydroides is incompatible with habitats on land,” said Oliver Rieppel, one of the researchers on the study.

T. hydroides has nostrils on top of its snout, like a crocodile’s, allowing it to breathe as it emerges on the surface.

Rieppel, who is also a paleontologist at the Field Museum in Chicago, said the animal spent some time lying down waiting for fish and other prey such as squid.

“It’s not very clear how T.hydroides’ neck works.”

“It may be part of a prey hunt. T. hydroides will hide its body and use its long neck to startle prey,” Rieppel added.
