They are classified in the order Plesiosauria along with their long-necked relatives, the plesiosaurs. They were characterized by massive heads, short necks, and streamlined tear-shaped bodies. They were the largest aquatic carnivorous reptiles that have ever lived and are often dubbed sea monsters.
