European Dinosaurs



Europe was very different during the time of the dinosaurs, sea-levels were higher, and thus many low-lying areas were underwater. Temperatures were warmer - and it was thus a Europe with shallow seas, and many tropical isles.

Furthermore, the position of the continents was different too:
  • During the early part of the Mesozoic Era (the Triassic Period), Europe 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. Europe was part of the northern super-continent, Laurasia, which also included North America and Asia (except for India). However, the very beginnings of the Atlantic slowly appeared, as North America slowly begun to separate from Europe.

  • In the Cretaceous Period, Laurasia continued to break-up. The Atlantic eventually grew into a wide ocean separating North America from Europe.
