The Pliocene Epoch started about 5.332 and ended about 2.588 million years ago.
Of, pertaining to, or characterizing, the most recent division of the Tertiary age., The Pliocene period or deposits.
The Pliocene epoch ended by glaciers and the beginning of the ice age. This is what started the pliostocene era
Pliocene animals were the animals that were present during the Pliocene Epoch. These animals included wooly mammoths, saber-toothed cats, Titanis birds, Titanotylopus camels, Agriotherium bears, turtles, crocodiles, snakes, and alligators.
Before the Pleistocene came the Pliocene
The earth during the Pliocene epoch would have looked very similar to how it is today - it was roughly around 6mya. Pangea on the other hand was over 200mya.
Pliocene or about 3.5 million years old.
It began forming in the late Pliocene epoch.
The correct answer would be PLIOCENE.
Wikipedia dates it to the late Pliocene, meaning it's over 2.5 million years old, but less than about 3.5 million years old (earlier than that would not be considered "late" Pliocene).
Absolutely no. Megalodon died out a long time ago in the Pliocene period.
We first came around in the Pliocene Period.
There were five epochs in the Tertiary: Paleocene, Eocene, Oligocene, Miocene, and Pliocene.
It is an active stratovolcano of the Pliocene age, last erupted in 1857
One of the major geologic events during the Pliocene Epoch was the joining of the North American and South American tectonic plates. This joining formed the Isthmus of Panama separating the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. This affected both land animals and marine life.
They existed in North America, Asia, Africa, and Europe during the Pliocene and Pleistocene ages.
Alligators and crocodiles died out in Europe as the climate cooled in the Pliocene Epoch. The modern species Alligator mississippiensis, having evolved in the Miocene, continued into the Pliocene, except with a more northern range; specimens have been found in very late Miocene deposits of Tennessee.

Scientists do believe that the modern humans appeared during pliocene and not epoch.
