The Mesozoic period (roughly 180MYA) was a period when much change was happening in the Earth's continental arrangement. The final stage of the break up of the supercontinent Pangaea is generally considered to have taken place in this period. Land and sea were different to how we see them today. Pangaea was on the onset of forming 2 smaller supercontinents called Laurasia and Gondwana. The Atlantic Ocean had not yet formed. The Himalayas were not there. It was a very different picture to what we see today. Have a look at this page for further details concerning the break up of Pangaea. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pangaea
During the Mesozoic era dinosours live and there were sea creatures like the lochness monster
Mammals, primates and most sea animals were extinct during the mesozoic era. And what caused this is a comet hit earth and the lack of sunlight that was able to reach earth the plants died out and without a food source so did the dinosaurs
Primitive birds first evolved from dinosaurs that were similar to Archaeopteryx during the Mesozoic. By the end of the Mesozoic, there were somewhat modern birds, as well as toothed birds, and the strange seabirds called Hesperornithiformes which could not walk or fly, but spent their entire lives in the sea. Many of the early birds we know of lived by eating fish and other small sea creatures.
Tethys sea was formed in the Mesozoic era (current era is Cenozoic) about 50-80 million years ago. It was located in the region where the Indian state of Kashmir lies. It was formed due to collision of the Indian and Eurasian tectonic plates, and subsequent draining of the sea/lake.
mass extinction of land and sea animals
Both. They traveled by land when they were on land, and by sea when traveling across continents, like to the colonies.
they can live on both. Crabs live on land and sea like hermit crabs
In a pre-mechanical transport era, it was impractical to move heavy cargo by land over longer distances, and sea transport was the answer.
The water from rivers feeding the sea were diverted to irrigate dry land to grow cotton during the Soviet era. Evaporation has reduced the Sea to almost nothing.
Primitive turtles first appeared during the Triassic period of the Mesozoic era. In the Jurassic period, turtles became much more diverse. By the Cretaceous, there were even giant sea turtles, such as Archelon.
A sea breeze. A land breeze blows from land to sea.
Sea breezes come from the sea onto the land, and land breezes come from the land onto the sea.
Sea rats are larger than most land rats, but i don't know what they look like
Yes, crocodiles, caimans, alligators, gavials, saltwater crocodiles, sea turtles, terapins, hellbenders, and marine iguanas, are some that live today. During the mesozoic era, many reptiles lived in the water, like plesiosaurs, placodonts, mosasaurs, sea turtles, nothosaurs, thalattosuchians ichthyosaurs, and more.
it looks like an arm of an ocean or sea extending into the land
A sea turtle is neither. It is a reptile, just like the snakes and lizards on land are reptiles.
Sea animals live in the sea and land animals live on the land.
The TethysOcean was an ocean that existed between the continents of Gondwana and Laurasia during the Mesozoic era before the opening of the Indian Ocean.
Many of the animals began to die off and became extinct.
The Precambrian is a longer span of geologic time leading up the the Paleozoic era. During the Cambrian period of the Paleozoic era, there was an explosion in the evolution of life forms. In the Precambrian, life was restricted to the sea. In the Paleozoic, life began on land.
land and sea
Green sea turtles appear to look like a land turtle. They can camoflage into their environment too.
