Nothosaurus (N. mirabilis `False Lizard´) is a genus of reptile Sauropterygia from the Anisian and Ladinian Ages of the Middle Triassic, approximately 240–210 million years ago, Nothosaurus mirabilis could reach 3 meters in length while other species of Its genus, such as Nothosaurus giganteus, could measure up to 6 meters long.
These reptiles were predators and perfectly adapted to aquatic life, with their webbed feet and streamlined body, they swam in the breakers and shallow coastal waters, but rested on the beaches and rocky caves along the coastline.
They were the main hunters of fish and other marine animals on the shores of the Ocean and are the best known member of the order of nothosaurs. They were found in the oceans and seas of what is now Europe and Asia.
It is thought that they could have laid eggs in the sand like today's turtles or they could have given birth to their young in the sea.
The Model Pose represents a specimen of Nothosaurus mirabilis resting on a rock on the shore of the Tethys Ocean.
