Eromangasaurus was an elasmosaur, a marine reptile known to have the longest neck of the plesiosaurs. It has flippers and a short tail to swim through the water and sharp interlocking teeth to prey on fish and other sea creatures. The skull of Eromangasaurus is crushed suggesting it was bitten by a larger pliosaur predator. It is named after the Eromanga Basin in which it was found and where during the Cretaceous much of Australia was flooded by an inland sea.
