Hydrotherosaurus was a genus of large plesiosaur, belonging to the family of Elasmosauridae. Hydrotherosaurus lived during the Late Cretaceous Period, about 70-65 million years ago, and reached up to thirteen meters (42 feet) in total body length. It was among the largest elasmosaurid plesiosaurs to have ever lived, falling just short of the massive Elasmosaurus. Although there are some differences, such as the teeth issue, Hydrotherosaurus and Elasmosaurus were very much alike.
Its name means "water beast lizard". Fossil specimen of the type species of Hydrotherosaurus, Hydrotherosaurus alexandrae, have been discovered in Fresno County, California and in Colorado in the year of 1943 by the American paleontologist Samuel Paul Welles. The type species was named by Samuel Paul Welles in honor of Annie Montague Alexander (1867-1950), a well-known American fossil collector that worked closely with the University of California. Hydrotherosaurus is only known from the complete skeleton that Welles discovered in 1943.
