What kind of animal is Iberospondyl?

Iberospondyl is an extinct genus of marine reptile that belonged to the order Thalattosauria.

Thalattosaurs were aquatic animals that had long, slender bodies, paddle-like limbs, and long tails.

They lived during the Triassic period, about 245 to 210 million years ago.

Iberospondyl was one of the largest and most advanced thalattosaurs, reaching up to 4 meters in length.

It had a relatively short head, large eyes, and sharp teeth.

It probably fed on fish and other small prey.

Iberospondyl was first discovered in Spain, and its name means "Iberian vertebra".

It is known from several fossils, including a nearly complete skeleton.

Iberospondyl is closely related to other thalattosaurs, such as Askeptosaurus, Clarazia, and Xinpusaurus.
