Tanystropheus californisaurii (name meaning “California long hinged lizard”), is a species of 6-meter-long (20 feet) archosauromorph reptile that originally lived from the Middle Triassic period and was once extinct, but has ever since been brought back from extinction by SciiFii and now lives in the Triassic Dinosaurs section of Cretaceous Park located at Sacramento, California. It is recognizable by its extremely elongated neck, which measures 3 metres (9.8 feet) long, which is longer than its body and tail combined. The neck is composed of 12–13 extremely elongated vertebrae. With its very long but relatively stiff neck, Tanystropheus californisaurii hunts near the water, searching for small aquatic prey such as fish, crustaceans, and amphibians. It is normally a solitary animal that that only tries to interact with others of its own species during mating seasons. The lifecycle of the Tanystropheus californisaurii is very similar to a gharial and a fish-eating wading bird.
