Every living creature has their own way of doing different things whether animals or human. But when we talk about marine reptiles, Plesiosaurs are the popular one. Long neck of this animal is the most distinctive feature, but the function performed by their flippers is complex to understand. There are researchers which performs various experiments based on water tanks with the help of robotized models.
This is the most unique animal among all vertebrates. They used identical pairs of flippers to drive this animal through water. Other existing species like sea lions and turtles have different sets of front and back, which use their front for thrust and back as their steering. Various different theories have been evolved since 1950’s regarding Plesiosaur. There is a team of experts which makes the production of 3-D printing flipper possible through the analysis of x-rays and fossils. They were directly attached to the mechanism of robots which have the ability for the combination of movements. It has been described in various researches and papers. It is also found that the shape and motion of this animal need to reproduce.
There is a major increase in the efficiency created by the back flipper especially for the swirling movements in water. It has also suggested that they should use all four flippers together to drive themselves through the water. They also identify the movement of Plesiosaurs. For this, they create a robot which helps in the identification of different behaviors of this animal in the water. Its result is the main reason for the success of this species. It also helps in retaining four flippers together which took more than 100 million years. This species results in multiple points which will make these experiments a success one.
Movement created by this species helps in the better understanding of the animal as a whole. It determines the traveled distance, other animals which can be guided, etc. their observation defines the solution of real-world applications by this species. It acts as a propulsion system of undersea vehicles. It could also help the researchers to make it more quick and efficient. A team has been created form various parts of the world by includes various biologists and engineers to produce the importance of understanding of propulsion of Plesiosaurs.
It further results in understanding and demonstration of various mechanics of flipper arrangement of this species. The efficiency created by this experiment enhances the contribution to the evolutionary success of these types of animals.
