Plesiosaurs are an interesting group of extinct marine reptiles that roamed the vast seas of the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous eras from 235 to 66 million years ago. Their fossils have been found in every continent on Earth, with key discoveries made in Australia, Europe and North America.

There are several families of plesiosaurs, including Elasmosauridae, Microcleididae and Plesiosauridae.

Zarafasaura oceanis belongs to the Elasmosauridae family.

The generic name Zarafasaura is derived from zarafa, Arabic for ‘giraffe’, and saurus, which means ‘lizard’ in Greek. The specific name means ‘daughter of the sea’ in Latin.

Zarafasaura oceanis was about 23 feet (7 m) long and lived from 72 to 66 million years ago.
