The supercontinent of Pangaea existed during the Permian. The interior of the content was mostly dry and desert like with more bountiful vegetation around the supercontinent perimeter.

The climate in the Permian period was varied, from being in an ice age to relatively warm climates

Tempatures during the Permian period would have been cooler because of continental drift of Pangea toward the northern parts of the globe. The conditions are also considered to be dry during this time period, where animals had to adapt to the climate becoming less water-based.

During the Permian, all the continents were joined together in the supercontinent Pangaea, which was covered mostly by desert.

They were much like they are today, but in different positions

The climate in the Permian period was very dry. Only certain portions received rain throughout the year. Temperature were unstable and widely changeable during this time.

In the Permian Period, the land on Earth was a giant landmass called Pangaea. It was arid and desert-like. The creatures probably would have like a freshwater lake.?รฆ?รฆ

== == The same geology that exists today existed in the Permian. Extrusive, igneous, and metamorphic rocks, volcanoes, tectonic plate movements, mountain creation, etc.

Pangea finished forming during the Permian Period so there was only one landmass. It gradually became more arid and the south was very cold and much was under an ice pack. The period ended with over 90 percent of marine life and 70 percent of land animals extinct.

It was a dry period so i assume that it was dry and humid.

The dimetrodon was a large, mammal-like reptile that lived during the Permian period, 260-280 million years ago. but it went extinct in the Permian Mass Extinction in 250 million Years ago.

The environment was covered with trees and grass, and the air was warm and moist.

In the Permian all the continents were joined up to form a super land mass, the link below shows a diagram of what earth would have looked like.

during the tertiary period, there was mostly trees and plants. during the quaternary period, the earth's climate cooled, so there was more ice.

User Avatar

Many of earth's marine invertebrates were extinct, and many other species that had evolved on earth were extinct as well, so basically the ecosystem was "rebuilding" after the Permian mass-extinction.

Dimetrodon was a mammal-like reptile that lived during the Permian period, which was before the dinosaurs came. It had a large saill on its back, probably to warm its body up. It walked on 4 legs and hd a tail.

User Avatar

the environment during the cretaceous period was warm with ice-free poles. Back then, there were mostly dinosaurs roaming the earth, but other mammals we see today were starting to appear.

Yes you can eat papaya during your period - there is nothing you can't do during your period, you can eat what you like when you like.

how did the earth look during the Tertiary time period

Pangaea existed from the Permian, about 299 million years ago, through the Triassic, and into the early Jurassic.There were very different animals in Pangaea during the Permian than there were in the Triassic because, at the end of the Permian, about 90% of species became extinct in the worst mass extinction in Earth's history.PermianInsects in Pangaea included beetles, dragonflies, and flies. Early in the Permian, large amphibians and pelycosaur reptiles, like the carnivorous, sail backed Demitrodon, or the herbivorous, sail backed Edaphosaurus. Later in the Permian the archosaurs evolved, which later gave rise to the dinosaurs, pterosaurs, and crocodillians. There were also therapsids, the reptillian ancestors of mammals. TriassicThe temnospndyli, which were large amphibians, and therapsids both survived the Permian extinction event. Archosaurs were the primary terrestrial vertebrates. There were herbivores such as Hyperodapedon, and carnivores like Postosuchus. The first dinosaurs were small meat eaters like Eoraptor, and small, long necked, herbivorous dinosaurs called prosauropods, evolved in Panagaea during the Triassic.

During this time period the climate was really warm and rather mild.
