Asian Dinosaurs



Asia was very different during the time of the dinosaurs:
  • During the early part of the Mesozoic Era (the Triassic Period), Asia was joined with all the other continents in one super-continent known as Pangaea.

  • By the Jurassic Period, Pangaea begun to break up into two smaller super-continents: Laurasia and Gondwanaland. Asia was part of the northern super-continent, Laurasia, which consisted of North America and Europe, as well as Asia (although India was still far to the South and joined to Gondwanaland, not Laurasia). South of Asia, lay the Tethys Sea (also sometimes known as the Tethys Ocean), and across that, the part of Gondwanaland that would eventually become Africa.

  • By the Cretaceous Period, Laurasia begun to break-up: North America separated from Europe, and the Atlantic Ocean gradually opened up between the two. Meanwhile, the Tethys Sea shrank in size, and would eventually disappear, as Africa move North. India also moved northwards towards Asia, eventually it too would collide with Asia (giving rise to the Himalayas)
