The Earth when Dinosaurs Roamed

The dinosaurs were found in Jurassic and Cretaceous period. The Earth during the Jurassic period was changing constantly. The Panagean super continent broke and formed different continents. In the beginning of Jurassic Period, Pangaea increased the distance of the Earth’s equatorial regions thus separating the Panthalassic Ocean and the Tethys Ocean. During the Jurassic Period, the North American and European continents diverged driven by plate tectonics. It was then earliest form of the Atlantic Ocean flooded the spreading sea floor basin between the emerging continents. It was by mid-Jurassic Period what would become the South American and African Plates and continents became distinguishable in a form similar to the present modern continents.

At the end of the Jurassic Period water separated, South America from Africa. The Australian and Antarctic continents were clearly formed and the Antarctic continent began migrating slowly towards the South Polar Region.

During the Cretaceous, the super continent Pangaea broke up further and forming the present-day continents. North America was broke away like Eurasia. With the onset of the Cretaceous, the giant southern continent of Gondwana was still intact, but later it disintegrated into the more familiar continents of Africa, Australia, Antarctica, and South America. Sea levels rose worldwide due to the rifting of Gondwana, which in turn caused huge mountain ranges to push up along the seabed, Due to the breakup With the Southern Atlantic and Indian Oceans were forced to form.
