Cretaceous Animals to Color Online

The Cretaceous Period was the last portion of the Mesozoic Era and the heyday of the dinosaurs; it was preceded by the Jurassic Period.

Most of the known dinosaurs lived during the Cretaceous. The Cretaceous Period lasted from 144 to 65 million years ago. During this time, mammals flourished; flowering plants evolved and changed the landscape radically. There was a high level of tectonic activity (continental plate movement) and accompanying volcanic activity.

The Cretaceous period ended 65 million years ago with the extinction of the dinosaurs and many, many other prehistoric life forms. This mass extinction was the second-most extensive in the history of the Earth.
