North American Dinosaurs



North America was very different during the time of the dinosaurs, sea-levels were higher, and large parts of the North American interior were thus shallow seas, permanently underwater. The inhabitants of these seas included included strange marine creatures, unknown today, such as Ammonites and Belemnites, as well as giant marine reptiles such as Plesiosaurs and Pliosaurs.

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

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