About the Jurassic Time Period
145.5 to 201 million years ago. As the Earth changed, more plants grew.
Trees began to grow and there were forests.
The herbivore (plant-eating) dinosaurs were bigger, so the carnivore (meat-eating) dinosaurs had to get bigger also so they could hunt the herbivores.
There were lots of flying and swimming reptiles, as well.
The Jurassic is the middle period of the Age of Dinosaurs. Jurassic dinosaurs were the biggest animals to ever walk the Earth.
Herbivores such as Apatosaurus, Brachiosaurus and Stegosaurus.
Carnivores such as Allosaurus, Megalosaurus and Yangchuanosaurus.
Mosses and liverworts survived from the Triassic period. They were found in swampy, moist areas.
During the Jurassic period, mosses and liverworts continued. Additionally, forests of cycads, ferns, gingko trees and conifers grew. These plants can still be seen today!
Let's take a look...
