Jurassic Period By: Ty Snitgen and Cade Simon

  • The Jurassic Period was the second segment of the Mesozoic Era. It occurred from 199.6 to 145.5 million years ago, a 54-million-year chunk following the Triassic Period and preceding the Cretaceous Period.
Generally warmer global temperatures, allowed for diversification and dominance of the dinosaurs. There would have been so many plants to eat that the dinosaurs would have grown large simply because they had unlimited food.
  • Most of the Climate was warm and moist.
  • Had a greenhouse climate that was lush and green.
  • The sea level was mostly higher

Event that occurred:

  • First birds and ocean life were seen
  • Coal formed under Australia and Antarctica
  • Continents broke up
  • Mass Extinction towards the end of the period
  • Mount Jura was formed
